A man working for a tree service company was killed after a tree fell on him Saturday morning, EMS spokesman Mike Chustz said. 

Emergency personnel responded to a report of a tree falling on a person in the 8800 block of Governor Pleasant Drive around 10 a.m. 

Paramedics tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate a man who was working when the tree fell on him, Chustz said.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner was contacted.
