Knotts worked for pipeline contractor Pete Gould & Sons Inc. of Ravenswood.

Pete Gould & Sons president James Gold tells The Exponent Telegram that the 44-year-old Orma resident was an experienced tree cutter.

U.S. Department of Labor regional director Leni Uddyback-Fortson says the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.
