George Harrison Memorial Tree killed by the Beetles

Help! Yesterday, the Beetles couldn't let it be, when the Norwegian Wood catched a Tree Tripper in Octopus's Garden on Penny Lane, et cetera et cetera.

A tree planted to honor of the memory of the Beatles songwriter George Harrison has been killed by actual beetles. As the Los Angeles Times reports, the living local monument fell victim to an infestation of insects that couldn't be bested. According to Councilman Tom LaBonge, the 10-foot-tall pine planted in 2004 bit the dust only recently, and a new one will be planted in its stead shortly.
