“It doesn’t look like any tree on this planet.” (Quote from http://www.apnmag.com/winter_2005/frankenpine.php) We are talking about a 100 foot cell phone tower disguised as a tree. It has been spotted in places such as San Diego, Washington, and Arizona. It has been described as a resembling a toilet brush and the phrase “frankenpine” is used to describe it.
This mock tree is causing a stir because the Adirondack Park Agency allowed a conditional permit to the Nextel Company to build a cell tower shaped like a pine tree. Many environmentalists are upset about this and the Adirondack Council is now taking the Adirondack Park Agency to the State Supreme Court over this issue. I though this was rather interesting and a bit odd! What do you think about this??
