Employee #1 was felling a tree against which a bulldozer had been set to prevent it from falling in the wrong direction. As the tree was coming down, the wind caught it and changed the path of its fall. The bulldozer blocked Employee #1's diagonal retreat, and he was struck and killed by one of the limbs as the tree came down. The tree was improperly hinged because of a faulty boring and a backcut that removed over 3/4 of the hinge.
