New app allows users to roll Toomer’s Oaks

AUBURN, Ala. (WIAT) — The iconic Toomer’s Oaks at Toomer’s Corner in Auburn may be on their way out, but Auburn fans can still roll the trees virtually.

A new app is available as a free download on smartphones that allows users to digitally drape the Toomer’s Oaks in toilet paper using a phone’s touch screen.

The app is available to be downloaded on the iPad or iPhone from the App Store for $1.99.

The real Toomer’s Oaks will be rolled one final time on Saturday, April 20, 2013.

The trees will be cut down on April 23, 2013.

CBS42 will be in Auburn when the trees are rolled for the final time and when they are scheduled to be cut down.
