Beetles Kill George Harrison Memorial Tree

A memorial pine tree planted at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles paying tribute to George Harrison -The Quiet Beatle- is being replaced. The reason for action is because beetles infested the tree causing its downfall. The tree was planted in 2004 to honor George who spent his last days in the Los Angeles area before his death in 2001.

Griffith Park officials plan to replant a pine tree similar to the now 10 foot tree that is being removed. A plague at the tree site that reads “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener” remains in place waiting for the new tree.

Here’s George doing an appropriate song for the poor pine tree done in by the beetles.
