Worker killed in tree removal accident ID'd

Safety measures to be investigated


Part of the large tree in the Woelfels’ front yard crashed onto power lines and snapped a utility pole during Hurricane Sandy on Oct. 29.

After Monday’s accident, police blocked off North Avenue between Marsh Avenue and Sagamore Place and surrounded the area with “crime scene’’ tape. A chain saw was on the ground near the fallen tree.

A man at the scene said he called 911 immediately after the accident.

Efforts to contact Plante’s Tree Removal Takedown company have been unsuccessful. The company is not listed in the phone directory.
