George Harrison memorial tree killed by real beetles

We read this news today. Oh boy.

A pine tree, planted in Los Angeles in memory of Beatle George Harrison, has been eaten by … beetles.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the tree, which was planted in 2004 near Griffith Observatory, was placed there because Harrison lived in L.A. before his death in 2001 and was an avid gardener.

Bark beetles and ladybug beetles have decimated the once 10-foot-tall tree. A new one will replace it soon.
