A tree planted in Los Angeles to honor former Beatle George Harrison has been killed — by beetles.
Councilman Tom LaBonge says the pine grew to more than 12 feet tall before succumbing to a bark beetle infestation.
The tree was removed last month. LaBonge says it will be replanted in the fall.
After Harrison’s 2001 death in Los Angeles, the pine was planted near Griffith Observatory. A small plaque at the base commemorates the guitarist and songwriter, who had a deep appreciation of gardening.
