BLUFFTON, S.C. (AP) - The town of Bluffton is suing a developer after it says more than 6,000 trees were cleared from land along the main road leading to Hilton Head Island.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports (https://bit.ly/1sVTztbr ) that Bluffton has sued over the clearing of 107 acres along U.S. 278.

The lawsuit alleges that Indian Hill Associates LLC violated a development agreement requiring the company to comply with town landscaping ordinances and protect trees on the property known as the Willow Run tract.

The town wants the timber profits and monetary damages amounting to triple the value of the removed trees.

Willow Run property owner Paul Schlosser told the newspaper he has not been notified of the lawsuit and would not talk about it.
