As far as I'm concerned, the trees are suited to the site, esp. when you compare their size to the size of the courthouse -- they do not need removed, just taken care of. (However, that poor tree in the flower bed needs a respectful funeral.)
The trees need to be trimmed by someone who doesn't believe in just chopping off limbs but rather studying the shape of the entire tree BEFORE any cutting is done.
About those wildflowers -- great idea. If people are worried about having to keep the lawn neat looking, vinca can be used as it's a low-growing ground cover that's also evergreen. And inexpensive as the woods around the county have plenty that could be transplanted.
