An Omakau man was taken by ambulance to Dunstan Hospital yesterday for treatment of moderate facial injuries after he was injured while dealing with trees.
The 47-year-old man was driven to the Omakau Four Square store after the incident, just before 3pm, on a nearby property.
An ambulance was dispatched from Alexandra and the man was examined outside the store before being driven by ambulance to Dunstan Hospital, at Clyde.
St John Alexandra team manager Grahame Sinclair said the man's injuries were not considered life-threatening.
Mr Sinclair said it was believed the man had either been pruning or felling trees on an Omakau property when he was hit in the face by a branch.
