    hit by fallen trees

    (1)hit by falling trees
    (2)hit by fallen trees

    I think (2) is not correct,
    but I found such sentences on the net.

    How do they sound to native speakers?

    Well, the tree has already fallen. It's Ok if, say, the tree rolled off a truck and then hit you, then you could say with much dread, "I was hit by a fallen tree!"

    falling tree: a tree falling to the ground hit me.
