In the wake of tree poisonings, students at Auburn University and the University of Alabama are putting their rivalry aside for the greater good.

On Wednesday, student government presidents from both schools announced they will plant two trees, one on each campus.

"There will be a plaque underneath that describes the mutual respect for one another and how we continue to help and foster a healthy rivalry," said Auburn University SGA president Kurt Sasser.

"Our rivalry is more than just a game,” said Alabama SGA president James Fowler. “It's a partnership and more times than not a our partnership is one that unites us instead of dividing us."

The trees are expected to be planted in the next few months.

    Maybe they can see which college can plant the most trees? Whose trees will grow the tallest? Which college can do the most free yard work for those who are no longer able to work in their yards? Nothing wrong with doing good while maintaining the level of competition.
