Does anyone know the story with this? It's a huge fake tree, the bottom looks like a telephone pole and there are very few branches on it at this point. Just wondered what was up. Seems random to me.

Not sure exactly, I;'ve not seen it, but I know many cell towers are now being built disguised as trees, or even flag poles.

Thank you! I never would have thought of that. I guess some people may not like looking at a telephone pole but might not mind a fake tree.
Thanks!!

From what I've gathered, it's a prototype for some new technology for the next breakthrough in wi-fi, or something along those lines.

My sources aren't credible, but it's as good a story as any I've heard so far.

Sean, sorry, it's a simple cell tower. But I do admire your conspiracy-theory outlook!

I heard Albert Pujols always favored the northwest, perferably Portland. So they put up this fake tree in hopes he would stay here
