“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,” McCartney said. 
As I was leaving my house this morning, I get out of the car, close the gate and look up at the tree and say, ‘Hi, George,'” the 78-year-old said. ''There he is, growing strongly … It’s lovely,'' he said adding that whenever he looks at the tree, ''I go, ‘That’s the tree George gave me.''
