English musician, singer-songwriter Paul McCartney’s has been destroyed by disease. The former ‘Beatles’ and Wings singer forest in which he had planted in memory of his late wife Linda, has in fact been destroyed.
Just after his wife had passed away from cancer in 1998 the singer had numerous trees planted on the border of their estate in Somerset, England. But now phytophthora ramorum or sudden oak death has forced the caretakers to cut them all down.
Unfortunately most of the trees are now gone, explain to the Sunday Telegraph,
“Some of them were diseased and it was decided that the larch would be chopped down as a preventative measure.
Lots of larch in the area are being chopped down.”
He dedicate all this to Linda including his children laying poises in memory of their mother and music played by the couple’s band ‘Wings’.
