What Looks Like a Palm Tree But Isnt!

 

Palm Tree Cell Tower in the California Desert

 

What looks like a palm tree from a distance but really isn't?

 

A palm tree cell tower!

 

We have been to the California desert (Palm Desert, La Quinta, Palm Springs) a number of times and spied this palm tree cell tower on one of our weekend trips. It was too perfect, even from a distance, so you could tell it was fake.

Haha I've seen these hidden in trees, too.  Pretty funny!

Jeff,

I agree . . . they aren't fooling anyone . . .  but it's the thought that counts

Jeff,  Its a great idea even if they do look fake ... the look better than towers with nothing but ... well ... towers

While it might be a fake, it is a clever way to disguise those towers.  It would be a little out of place in our area

Jeff Dowler - I live in PA so our cell towers are actually quite boring looking compared to this clever design... Perhaps PA would consider the palm tree cell tower idea...??

I like that.  Many people do not like the looks of the towers and this helps.

Hi Jeff - We don't have palm trees here, but our fake cell tower trees mostly come in pine and spruce flavor. A palm would be a good change of pace.

They are, aren't they John Meussner ?!

I agree, Will!

Kathleen Daniels  - the plain towers are pretty ugly. It's better to disguise them somehow

Now that's cool Jeff. I've seen them attempted to be disguised as trees but this is a new & better way to do it!

Saw these in Vegas many times and they blend in pretty well.

Hi Jeff - that is a great idea.  We have cell towers that look like trees along our parkways, too.

Hi Jeff -- if we must have cell towers(and we do, right?), I think this type of creatiity is a very good thing.

Cracked me up, because of course we don't have palm tree cell phone towers in NC -- it would look truly out of place.  We do have pine tree cell phone towers, though, mostly near residences.

LOVE IT, we need those here. They try to make them look like pine trees here but they lack the key thing,  green branches Jeff Dowler

Ed Silva  - no doubt they would really grab your attention!

Maria Sapio  - I'd say the same about the towers we had back in New England. I love the palm tree!

I suspect no one likes the look of cell towers William Feela . Anything that can be done to improve them is a good thing

You have to agree that it is nicer to look at than a regular cell tower. Pretty clever, but I can't imagine the cost to make.
