I agree! I was trying to remember, for some reason I was under the impression that one of the reasons for MLK Blvd. was to save those sweet old trees that line Market St. Over 30 years ago, I learned to drive my brother's big 4 x 4, down that street. Every work day for 25+ years I managed not to hit any trees or for that matter, light poles either. My children learned to drive past them on their way to NHHS, without incident. Praise! Not that many years ago, there were big rig trucks from the old Wilmington Coca-Cola that used Market St. daily! Wonder how many school bus drivers learned to managed it daily for years, however difficult. And yes, there have been many accidents, from the minor to the most devastating. Slow the speed down, trim them, manage them, if they are past being saved, remove them. It's not rocket science, folks...just saying!
