George Harrison Memorial Tree Cut Down…….Cause of Death is Ironic.

Here’s your daily dose of irony. A tree planted in Los Angeles was taken down over this past weekend. Not just any tree, no, it’s the very same tree that was planted to honor the memory of the late Beatles great George Harrison. The irony you ask? Cause of death was……wait for it……Beetle infestation. I can’t make this up.

The sapling, which had grown to more than ten feet tall, was planted in 2004 near Griffith Observatory in memory of Harrison, who spent his last years in Los Angeles before dying in 2001 at the age of 58. Harrison, an avid gardener for most of his adult life, was cremated at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

The 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.”
