By Kristen Fisher

Auburn University fans will soon be able to take home a piece of the Oak Trees on Toomer's Corner as a lifelong souvenir.

Debbie Shaw, vice president of Auburn Alumni Affairs, says the University plans to turn pieces of the oak trees into commemorative items.

The trees will be removed on April 23rd .

After that, Auburn will install three concrete poles with wires, 3 to 4 inches apart, for fans to roll until further plans are made to renovate the corner.

Fans will be able to roll the famous oak trees for the final time at Auburn's A-day game on April 20th.
