Actual Beetles Killed Actual Beatle George Harrison’s Memorial Tree

What will become of Monroe Yoder's memorial beet farm?

George Harrison Tree

The Beatles’ George Harrison had a tree planted in his memory in 2004 in Los Angeles where the musician spent the last few years of his life. In a strange twist of fate, the tree was recently¬†infested with real, actual, non-musical beetles and died. The tree will be replanted, but in the meantime maybe someone should get¬†over to Strawberry Fields with a can of Raid. Just in case.
