Beatles Memorial Tree Destroyed By Beetles Because Irony

A pine tree planted to memorialize Beatles member George Harrison, who passed away in 2001, has died from, yep, a beetle infestation.

Furthering the irony, the plaque on the now-brown tree features one of Harrison's favourite quotes by his guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: "For the forests to be green, each tree must be green."

A new tree will be planted, and hopefully this time the tree beetles will let it be.
