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.

Why plant a freaking pine tree in the first place.   They couldn't find a sturdy oak?

Various pines and oaks are indigenous to coastal California.

Harrison lived here for a length of time, during the Traveling Wilburys era, with the group purportedly started in Bob Dylan's Malibu garage.

Plant another tree.
