A woman was injured by a falling tree in Wilmette

The woman was walking her dog Monday morning near 5th and Greenleaf when a 65-foot tree fell and trapped her between the branches.

She was taken by ambulance to the hospital. She had minor injuries but was under evaluation.

A fireman on the scene said the tree had been decaying.

The recent rain may have loosened its roots further.
