"No one has made a decision to remove those trees," Kinston City Manager Tony Sears said Tuesday. When Kinston City Council discussed converting Queen Street to a two-way road with diagonal parking they had a meeting at the Kinston-Lenoir County Public Library to discuss some options for the city's main street. One of the options was replacing the trees on Queen Street. Residents were given a few options, including keeping the trees, and shown some other trees that could take the current holly trees' place. Residents who attended the meeting voted to change the trees. "The 60-plus people who attended the public meeting wanted different trees," Sears said.

"We don't want anything that is going to damage the sidewalk, and we also don't want anything that is going to damage the utility lines that are on Queen Street," Sears said. The new trees that residents selected at a public meeting earlier this year could have a different root system. Some members of the community are worried that the loss of the trees would change Christmas decorating downtown. The current trees are festooned with lights each year. "I'm not sure if the reason to select a tree for downtown should necessarily be based off Christmas; other communities have ways of lighting their downtown and celebrating Christmas without the use of holly trees," Sears said. The trees on Queen Street are roughly 60 years old. "I understand the reason people like the holly trees is because they are nostalgic," Sears said. The state Department of Agriculture has offered to help the city with any decisions they make about the trees in the future. "We're not quite ready to dive into that selection process yet," Sears said.

"This is unrelated to the other work on Queen Street and this is the type of problem we are trying to prevent in the future," Kinston City Manager Tony Sears said. The current sewer lines under Queen Street are scheduled to be replaced sometime in June due to their age. City officials hope that by replacing the lines, repairs like this won't happen as often in the future. Right now officials don't know when the project will be done and the intersection will reopen. Sears said this process could take a while because the hole will be really deep and big. "It's a safety issue; we have to open up an area bigger then what is needed for all the safety standards the city is required to meet," Sears said. Officials said due to the line being so old, there could be a problem with deterioration which could make the process take longer. "Sometimes they have to take out more than they wanted to to get to a good section they could piece back together," Sears said. Officials would like to see the work finished quickly but want the repair to hold. "It's more important to repair this once and get it squared away and not have to come back a second time," Sears said.
