George Harrison Memorial Tree Destroyed By Beetles

OK, this is pretty bizarre. The George Harrison Memorial Tree in Los Angeles was destroyed by actual beetles.

According to Spin Magazine, the tree was planted in 2004 in memory of the Beatles guitarist and songwriter.

A plaque at the site reads: “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener.”

The tree is located in the city’s Giffith Observatory. Councilman Tom LaBonge said that the city will be planting a new tree in honor of George Harrison soon. LaBonge might want to consider a “No Beatles Allowed” sign for the new tree.

The city hasn’t identified the specific species of beetle that destroyed the tree but the Chicago Tribune notes that bark beetles and ladybug beetles both have an intense hate for gardens, plants, music and, specifically, George Harrison.
