George Harrison’s Tree Gets Eaten By Beetles
If you haven’t seen this story yet, it’s one of the most ironic things you’ll ever read. A tree dedicated to the memory of the legendary Beatles guitarist George Harrison has been killed by…you guessed it…a group of hungry beetles.
The tree was planted in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park as a tribute to Harrison 10 years ago. Of course, California has been mired in a several drought lately, which has caused a massive beetle infestation at the park. Sadly, the hungry bark beetles have now eaten their way though the 12 foot tree.
According to a Los Angeles City Councilman, plans are in place to plant a new tree in honor of George Harrison once the beetle infestation subsides. Yoko Ono has yet to comment on the story.
