George spent much of his later life working on the eucalypts, and it is fitting that a memorial to him should be placed on the Gardens' Eucalypt Lawn.

On 6 June, 2010, a memorial service was held at the Gardens, where his wife Thelma unveiled a plaque in his memory. (The plaque measures 295 mm by 210 mm.)
