Trees Paul McCartney Planted for Late Wife Had to Be Cut Down

When Paul McCartney’s wife Linda passed away in 1998, the heartbroken singer planted a small forest lining his estate in her honor. Their children even placed posies on the trees in a ceremony to mark the start of the patch of forest.

Sadly, due to something called phytophthora ramorum, a disease making its way through the woods also known as sudden oak death, the trees had to be cut down.

Joe Duckworth from the League Against Cruel Sports, the caretakers of the forest, told the 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.”

Anyone who has seen a patch of dead trees in the middle of a forest know how quickly something like this can spread from tree to tree. Still, knowing it was a memorial of sorts for Linda McCartney planted by her husband Paul makes the whole thing very sad. Perhaps he’ll consider replanting once the threat of disease is gone.
