A 34-year-old Hawaiian Telcom worker suffered a leg injury and some abrasions to his right arm in Makawao about 1:40 p.m. Friday after a large eucalyptus tree fell on a boom holding the hydraulic lift bucket he was in, Maui firefighters said.

The man, who was repairing phone lines damaged in the morning due to a fallen tree, fell about 20 feet, firefighters said. He was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

The fallen trees were in the area of Meha and Hanamu roads. Firefighters said wind and rain were factors in the undermining of the trees.
