The correct answer is D. The court has the discretion to order specific performance or damages, but such remedies are subject to the equitable doctrine of laches, which bars claims where there has been an unreasonable delay in asserting one’s rights. The principle "equity aids the vigilant, not those who sleep on their rights" means that trustees' inaction over a significant period may preclude them from obtaining equitable relief. 

Key Point: Trustees must act promptly to enforce trust terms and protect trust property. The equitable doctrine of laches can prevent claims for specific performance or damages if there is an unreasonable delay.
