At 2:00 p.m. on January 6, 2016, an employee was using his chainsaw on a tree to do a face and back cut near the base, and to prep it for the excavator to push it down by mechanical felling. As the tree was being pushed over, the employee was about 15 feet away from the tree stump, when a dead branch fell down and hit the employee on the head. The employee was killed as a result of head injuries.
