A memorial tree planted for George Harrison has been killed - by beetles.
The pine, which was set into the earth near Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park, California in 2004 to commemorate the life of the Beatles legend - who died of cancer in 2001 - has been uprooted by council officials after falling victim to insect infestation.
The sapling had grown to over 10 feet tall, but Los Angeles council member Tom LaBonge told the Los Angeles Times newspaper that the beetle onslaught was too much for the tree.
A new tree is set to be planted in its place, but no date has yet been set for the replanting.
The original tree was planted to honour the 'My Sweet Lord' singer because he spent his final days in Los Angeles, and was known to be an avid gardener.
He famously bought a rundown mansion, Friar Park, in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, South East England, and over the years transformed the overgrown gardens into a picturesque, tranquil area surrounding his home.
He once said: ''I'm not really a career person. I'm a gardener, basically.''
