IRONY: George Harrison Memorial Tree Killed By Beetles

Yes, that’s right…beetles. The Los Angeles Times is reporting the southern California monument dedicated to the fallen Beatle, who lost his fight to cancer at the age of 58 in 2001, has been destroyed by an infestation of the pesky black bugs. The monument, which was planted after Harrison’s death in 2001, was reported to have grown larger than 10 feet tall in 2013.

At the bottom of the tree contains a plaque memorializing Harrison‘s life, stating: “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener.” It also includes a quote from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, saying: “For the forest to be green, each tree must be green.”

The tree is planned to be replaced and I’m sure we all can agree Harrison wouldn’t want the Taxman’s money spent any other way.
