"Unobtrusive" Cell Tower/Pine Tree Merely 30 Feet Too Tall

These days, it’s quite common to disguise cell towers. We’ve had plenty of stories on that before. These usually don’t go over too well with local residents… assuming they know about it. When they don’t know about it, they very rarely notice the towers at all. However, a new tower planned in upstate NY off of Lake George has local residents pretty pissed off. While Nextel Partners promises to “disguise” the tower as a pine tree, it will still be 30 feet taller than any other tree in the area. Nextel Partners insist this shouldn’t matter and believe it won’t be noticeable at all. Sounds kind of like what you tell the elementary school kid who had his growth spurt before everyone else in the class…
