BUGGIN: George Harrison Memorial Tree KILLED By Beetles

July 22, 2014

George Harrison‘s memorial tree located at L.A.’s Griffith Observatory has ironically been done in by tree eating beetles, not a new band, the bug.

The pine planted in 2004 was in honor of Harrison‘s band, The Beatles, but that didn’t stop bark beetles and ladybug beetles from devouring the icon’s tree.

Harrison’s pine had grown to more than 10 feet tall in 2013, LaBonge said, but the recent onslaught of beetles sadly proved to be fatal. Fortunately, though, the tree will be replanted, although exactly when this will take place remains to be announced. A plaque at the tree’s base reads: “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener.” It also quotes Harrison himself, saying: “For the forests to be green, each tree must be green.” source

 
Harrison lost his battle to cancer in 2001 at age 58.
