This is not a job normally taken on by the company. Employee #1 was on the bed of a semi-truck preparing to place a wrapper, tie down, on a olive tree to hold it in place during transportation. The olive tree was being secured by the boom and bucket of a backhoe.

Employee #1 received a fracture to his left lower leg and was hospitalized.
