EXETER — A Rochester man was killed Friday when he was struck by a tree while working at a job site, police said.

Urban Tree Service employee Keith Hussey, 44, died at the 11 Garrison Lane scene, police said.

Emergency workers were called to the home about 11:30 a.m.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was notified and is investigating.

A representative of Urban Tree Service issued a statement on the death, but did not comment on the investigation or the details of the accident.

“On Friday we did lose an important and valued member of our family at Urban Tree Service and right now we are mourning his passing and offering condolences to his family and loved ones. At this moment we are not commenting beyond this,” the representative said.

The homeowner was too shaken to talk about the accident but placed flowers on a tree near where Hussey was killed.
