Default George Harrison Memorial Tree Killed . . .

Are you ready for it . . . . by actual beetles.

A tree planted to honor of the memory of the Beatles songwriter George Harrison has been killed by actual beetles. As the Los Angeles Times reports, the living local monument fell victim to an infestation of insects that couldn't be bested. According to Councilman Tom LaBonge, the 10-foot-tall pine planted in 2004 bit the dust only recently, and a new one will be planted in its stead shortly.


Harrison's last years were spent living in L.A. he died there at 58 in late 2001, and was cremated at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. The so-called George Harrison Tree was accompanied by a plaque reading: "In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener." It includes a quote from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: "For the forest to be green, each tree must be green"

I wonder what type of pine tree grows that slow. Ten years old
and only 10' tall.
