Beatles tree is killed by.. the beetles.

Byline: PAT FLANAGAN

A MEMORIAL tree planted in memory of George Harrison has been destroyed by beetles.

The pine, which was put in the ground in 2004 to honour the Fab Four legend, became infested by insects which eventually killed it.

The Beatles once sang Let it Be but the beetles in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, refused to take their advice and it was a case of Hello Goodbye to the sapling.

One fan tweeted yesterday George would chuckle at the thought of his tree becoming a victim of beetle-mania.

But the great guitarist's memory will live on as another tree is to be planted in the park.

George died in 2001 and a plaque at the sapling reads: "In memory of a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and a gardener."
