The Redwoods of Radon

The buds on the trees are blooming, the birds are awakening before dawn, the air seeps of spring and the trees soar thro--.....WHAT THE....?

Mother Nature just pulled a muscle scratching her head on what she just created. Have to love the architects of cell tower camouflage and their ingenious attempts to "blend" into the scene. I mean other than having a phallic symbol combined with a pipe cleaner on steroids, this actually looks like something you would see in the rocky mountains ...from the space shuttle.

I agree, the naked cell towers of metal obstructions are not beauty to behold, but at least it is what it is. Perhaps you could create a tall fake hill with AstroTurf so the "tree" you create is only protruding 20 feet like its surrounding areas and not trying to compete with the Sears Tower with a 5 o'clock shadow. Use mirrored metal so it reflects the nature it invades instead of using artificial Christmas tree spare parts to cover your "roaming" monstrosity. Better yet, read what Ericcson is doing with their towers around the world. http://www.ecogeek.org/content/view/955/

The best part is where they place these wonders of cell talkology. Behind schools, churches and cash starved companies who want the tax break, funding and of course the health benefits of having a Dr. Seuss' Lorax live above your children and make free cell calls. I was calling my representative to complain but I don't seem to have any bars on my phone.
