In what amounts to a sad irony, a tree planted to celebrate the life of Beatle, George Harrison, was destroyed by, of all things, beetles. George died in 2001. He was only 58. Planted three years after his death, the twelve-foot tree in Griffith Observatory gardens, Los Angeles, had to be torn out. Below the tree was a simple plaque: “In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener.” Not a bad tribute for a working-class kid from Liverpool. The beetles, well, they were simply being … beetles. In stealing their name (sort of), perhaps George owed them one.
