A 60-year-old man is in serious condition after he fell from the roof of his Mississauga home.

Police say the man was trying to remove a tree from his roof when he fell about 10 feet.

Emergency officials were called to the home on Glenleven Crescent, in the Bexhill Road and Lakeshore Road West area around 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

The man was taken to hospital with non-life- threatening injuries.

Premier Kathleen Wynne has advised the public not to remove downed branches and trees from their property on their own.
