Sir Paul McCartney reveals he talks to tree 'inhabited by spirit of George Harrison'

SIR Paul McCartney has revealed he talks to a tree — believing it is inhabited by the spirit of Beatles pal George Harrison.

The singer, 78, said George, who died aged 58 in 2001, has “entered” a giant fir at the entrance to his estate.

Explaining the connection, Sir Paul said: “George was very into horticulture, a really good gardener, so he gave me a tree as a present.

“It’s a big fir tree and it’s by my gate.

“I get out of the car, close the gate, look up at the tree and say, ‘Hi George’. There he is, growing strongly.”

Sir Paul — whose new album McCartney III hit the top of the US Billboard chart yesterday after being Christmas No1 here — said the tree at his Sussex estate acts as a reminder.

He added: “It’s lovely. He gave it to me — I just planted it.

“But then, as the years go by, every time I look at it I go, ‘That’s the tree George gave me’.

“George has entered that tree, for me. I hope he’s happy with that.”
