Man pinned under tree limb dies

Worker fell from tree, branch dropped on him

(Continued)

A man at the scene said he called 911 immediately after the accident. He said another worker at the scene yelled, “One of my guys is under the tree!”

A pickup truck at the scene was put on a ramp truck and removed from the scene by investigators.

Efforts to contact Plante’s Tree Removal Takedown company were unsuccessful. The company is not listed in the phone directory and police refused to let a reporter get close enough to the scene to talk to company workers.
