A 20-year-old man has been airlifted to hospital after he was crushed by a tree, Wednesday afternoon, at a property north of Roma.

It is believed the man was carting trees when one became loose and pinned him to the ground.

He sustained abdominal injuries and a suspected broken leg as a result of the incident.

The man was treated at the scene by ambulance paramedics before the LifeFlight rescue helicopter crew arrived to stabilise him for the flight.

The man was then flown to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
