Landscaper Dies While Trimming Tree in Princeton

An employee of a local landscaping company died Sunday afternoon after being struck by a tree limb while trimming trees on Woodland Drive in Princeton.

Jose Delcid, 40, of Ewing, was working under a 130-foot high tree when another worker cut a 15-foot tree limb with a chain saw, police said. The tree limb broke free from an orange safety rope and fell on Delcid, who suffered severe head trauma.

When police and the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad arrived on the scene just after noon Sunday, Delcid was on the ground, unconscious and unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.  He was an employee of the Ewing-based Greenway Lawncare and Landscaping.
