Carolyn Austin, 76, Hilton Head Island resident for thirty-five years, stands on top of fallen trees, shrubs, and other plants that she was ordered to cut down on a strip of land by her house at the end of Avocet Street for beach access on January 13, 2014.  ?Its' all sour grapes... For an Island that finds trees precious, and doesn't let anyone cut a tree down without planting two back, this is a disaster.  Because I was ordered to destroy 36 trees to put a path 5 feet away from an already established concrete walkway? said Austin.
