You'd think beetles would show some love for one of the Beatles, but they didn't give any preferential treatment George Harrison's memorial tree!
A pine planted in 2004 near L.A.'s Griffith Observatory in honor of the iconic musician was killed by his band's namesake insect, local councilman Tom LaBonge told The Los Angeles Times. In order words? A Beatle's memorial tree was killed by beetles!
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.
