Beetles Kill Beatles Tree

July 24th, 2014 - 1:18 pm



Some stories are so weird you just can’t make them up. Take, for instance, the saga of a pine tree planted in honor or late Beatles member George Harrison near the famed Griffith Observatory in 2004.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the tree died as a result of an insect infestation. The culprit? Bark beetles and ladybug beetles that infested the tree, which had grown to more than 10 feet tall as of last year.

The tree was quietly planted a decade ago following Harrison’s death in 2001 as a tribute to the guitarist/singer spending his final days in Los Angeles and Harrison’s love of gardening.

I had no idea he loved to garden — or what else to do with this strange little story.

There is joy in working a small patch of ground and watch those fruits come up year after year. Just as George Harrison found beauty in day lilies my wife taught that to me. Easy to grow and the surprise they give every year is immeasurable.
Enjoy your camping trip.

The climatistas know what to do with this story. I won't pollute you with the link, but the usual suspects say that Climate Change killed George Harrison's tree. A little work and they might to discover that it killed him too.
