    Looks like a species of conifer, more specifically Cellphoneius Towerus /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Wow that reallys looks out of place there, an undisquised tower would look better.

    It's basically in a guys front yard... If I had taken the pic from back farther you would see that... I wonder how much they pay him for the rent?

    Don't know because I haven't seen it in the dark yet. Nothing you can see in the daytime anyways... It's in a valley. Planes really shouldn't be flying through there that low but then again... LOL!!! People do like to have fun around here... It's the size of a tree that might be found up in the mountains but here? Geeesh,,, There aren't even any other trees around. It's the only one... LOL!

    That guy whos yard its in gets paid well for it. Local junkyard has one(not camoed like that cool one). I've seen ones like that in Jersey, where there are lots of Pine trees... in the middle of the desert, who was smoking what?

    I'll go ahead and get the bigger picture for you on Friday when I have to go back there again. It's funny how this thing sticks out and the even funnier thing is, a tower without this camo tree stuff would have been less noticed in my opinion...

    Monopine, lol, I build these for a living, actually I lease the space for them for the carriers, but my company also builds them... Kinda cool, and would you believe it costs around $500,000.00 to build one of those bad boys.....

    There's one of those near me, but it's among other trees of roughly the same height. You've gotta look somewhat carefully to pick it out of the crowd.

    What kind of rent do they pay to put one of those on your property?
