Two men have been killed on NSW roads after slamming into trees.

Just before 8am on Monday a 74-year-old died behind the wheel of his Nissan Nirvana in a single-vehicle crash on Warrumbungle Way at Weetaliba, about 155km east of Dubbo.

The accident followed that involving a 56-year-old motorcyclist who lost control and struck a tree in Monga National Park, east of Braidwood, in the Southern Highlands late on Sunday night.

Police said he died at the scene.
