George Harrison

An infestation of beetles has killed a memorial tree planted in honor of Beatles icon George Harrison.

The pine tree was planted in Griffin Park in Los Angeles, Calif., in 2004, three years after the musician, guitarist, singer-songwriter died from lung cancer. It represented the star's love of gardening.

Unfortunately, bark beetles and ladybugs led to the 10-foot-tall tree's demise. According to the Los Angeles Times, officials plan on replacing the tree with a new one in the same spot.

Often referred to as "the quiet Beatle," Harrison released several solo albums after the legendary band split up and joined the supergroup Traveling Wilburys in 1988, consisting of Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Jim Keltner and his son Dhani Harrison.

He was also a film producer and collaborated with people as diverse as the members of Monty Python and Madonna.
