    Link: Cell tower made to look like tree - I guess that does make it a little less ugly.

    I`d seen pictures of the models a few years ago at Nextel (a customer of mine at the time). They also do palm trees and other varieties.

    Reminds me of the radiohead song title: fake plastic trees.
    Only flaw in the concept is that you can only use evergreens.

    Somebody`s gonna` climb that thing during christmas and get hurt trying to hang decorations on it. I think it actually makes it look worse by faking it as a tree.

    We have those all over the place where I live, in Southern California. The palm trees actually look kind of nice, but the pine trees are eye pollution.

    Besides cancerous birds when the cell-phone company wants to take the tower down they`ll get protesters chaining themselves to the tower to protect it from deforestation.

    lol. I guess that ugly tree stands out less in Pennsylvania, where I live (although it is still rather hideous). Why not go all the way and make it into something amusing?
