Paul's Tribute to Linda McCartney Destroyed by Disease
While the foliage has stayed alive and healthy for years, unfortunately, many of the memorial trees have now caught a deadly tree disease and are being cut down to stop the spread of a sickness, reports U.K. newspaper the Telegraph.
According to the Telegraph, the trees are being floored to prevent the takeover of a tree disease called "sudden oak death," which is quickly spreading among a variety of species of trees and infecting the larch and other foliage in the vicinity. "Some of them were diseased and it was decided that the larch would be chopped down as a preventative measure," explained Joe Duckworth of the League Against Cruel Sports, a charity supported by McCartney. more on this story
