A Gilman man has died after a tree fell on him while he was using a farm tractor for logging in the township of Roosevelt.

The Taylor County Sheriff's Office says 49-year-old Brian Knusta was dead at the scene. Authorities say he was using the tractor for logging on the afternoon of Feb. 15 and it appears he tried to pull a cut tree free when it fell on him.

The tractor kept going and came to rest across the field.
