A new cellphone tower being built near Providence Road will look like an elm tree to blend in with its surroundings.
Taylor Lowder ties the tree branches to the lift basket to bring up to the top of the tower on Thursday. Lowder said it was really windy up above the tree line so they could only bring a few branches up at a time.
The new cellphone tower will have fake tree branches attached to the exterior so it blends in with its surroundings. The leaves are made of plastic and the branches are fiberglass.
