A Tahuya man was killed Monday morning by a falling tree.
Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell identified the man as 75-year-old Jon F. Maves. Maves reportedly was attempting to locate hazardous trees on his property in the 1000 block of NE Mountain View Drive in Tahuya during a wind event. He was struck and killed at approximately 11:45 AM.
Stockwell said the tree that struck Maves was rotted and unexpectedly snapped at its base.
The incident is being investigated by the coroner and the Mason County Sheriff.
