Q. Two of the live oaks directly in front on Halyburton Park suffered major damage from the ice storm, These are good size trees probably planted when 17th Street Extension was constructed. Can they be saved from being cut down?

A. No. Two trees in the median of Wilmington’s South 17th Street were damaged badly enough that they will need to be removed, said Aaron Reese, the city’s arborist.

A third tree was fairly heavily damaged and may need to be removed, Reese said.

Live oaks will be replanted after the damaged trees are removed, he said.
