Fake palm tree & pine tree tower disguises
 

Independent travel tips for the professional at Leisure

October 2008

 

 

Fake palm tree & pine tree tower disguises are a great way to cover up ugly light poles and towers.  I recently purchases some artificial metal palm tree covers for light poles, and here is my research:

  • This site sells custom pine tree and palm tree disguises, but they are expensive.

  • These folks sell metal tree branches, quite good for disguising utility poles and cell phone towers.:

  • This site sells artificial palm trees.

I chose this product, a artificial palm tree head with 36 fronds.  It is listed as Larger Cycas Palm Head 24 or 36 fronds 5' to 6' wide, and it's made of U.V. Resistant Plastic for outdoor use.

 We purchased this fake palm tree top from EarthFlora for one of our utility poles, to disguise it.

This 100-foot-tall “stealth” cell tower that resembles an eastern white pine tree, many visitors to The Greenbrier may never realize it’s here, but will benefit from its high-tech services.

Called a “monopine,” the fake pine tree has 216 branches that start 20 feet above the ground which hide the bread-box-size receivers and transmitters. 

Johnson said it took about 10 days to construct the cell tower at a cost of $140,000.

There are also fake palm tree covers that disguise telephone poles, cell towers and light poles, making them look like a real palm tree.
