George Harrison’s Beetle Infested Memorial Tree Has Been Replaced

George HarrisonOn Wednesday, one of rock and roll’s most famous dead tree has been replaced.

Last year, the Canary Island pine tree originally planted in memory of George Harrison in 2004 died after a severe beetle infestation.

The fallen tree has been replaced by a 10-foot tall yew pine on February 25, which would have been Harrison’s 72nd birthday.

Although Harrison’s widow, Olivia Harrison, and son, Dhani Harrison, weren’t able to attend the ceremony at Griffith Park in Los Angeles, the musician’s older sister, Louise took part in the event as well as Jack Oliver, former present of the Beatles’ Apple Records label.

A plaque near the tree site says it honors “a great humanitarian who touched the world as an artist, a musician and gardener.”
