WHITING, Maine — A Lubec man was killed Monday afternoon when a tree fell on him as he worked on a wood lot, according to police.

The body of Edward Dimsmore, 66, was discovered in the Washington County town of Whiting, Maine State Police spokesman Stephen McCausland said Tuesday.

Dinsmore had been cutting trees off Barney Field Road on Monday.

An investigation by state police and Maine forest rangers concluded that Dinsmore had cut two trees at the same time, with one falling as expected and the other pinning him to the ground, McCausland said.
