A man has been killed in a forestry accident north of Gisborne.

Emergency services were called to Tarndale Road, near Whatatutu, on Wednesday afternoon, says Senior Sergeant Mike Stevenson.

Police were in the process of contacting next of kin and WorkSafe had been advised, he said.

The workplace accident happened about the same time an 18-year-old man was killed while repiling a house on the West Coast.
