The owner of a Shelby Township-based tree removal company was killed Tuesday evening in a work-related accident while removing trees from a private residence near 24 Mile and Mound roads.
Shelby Township Lt. Stan Muszynski said the man was sucked into an industrial wood shredder as he placed tree branches inside. A neighbor found the man already dead around 9:30 p.m.
The man's name has not been released. However, Muszynski, said the victim owned Fellas Tree Company, which is listed at 25 Mile Road in Shelby Township.
Calls placed to Fellas Tree Company were unanswered Wednesday.
