This one isn't far from me. Looks like someone had the directions upside down.

Good grief is that idiotic looking. It's worse than if it was just a regular tower, what a way to attract attention that was not wanted. Weird.

Some folks complained about the ugly tower. So they built a tree( that does not exist in the desert) and built it upside down!

Flip that sentence around and you are probably right.

So, in order to create a better looking cell tower, spend five times the amount of a regular one and you get something that looks even worse. Plus, it’s upside down.

We have quite a few as well although ours aren't upside down. They don't look so bad until half the "foliage" blows away. Then they look worse than a regular tower!

Maybe it’s just me, but what is the point of hiding a cell tower in a desert? Especially when there is a substation not that far behind it?

They don't want to upset the tortoises and wild burros.

There’s one like that along the Garden State Parkway at least since the mid 90’s.

They just put one up like that near my house. It looks terrible.


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.

The fake tree thing looks terrible and IMO worse than an actual tower, which I don’t mind the look of.

Is this another California thing? Something about not disturbing a few rabbits or mice?
