Officers responded to a 911 call from the home just after 8 a.m. Friday, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
A storm, which had struck the area Friday morning, caused the tree to go through the Woodville home where the 8-year-old and a 12-year-old boy were inside.
Both children were transported to the hospital with injuries, police said.
The 8-year-old was pronounced dead at the hospital, according to officials.
The 12-year-old, who is now with family members, suffered non-life threatening injuries, police said.
The deceased child’s identity has not been released.
