Sprint builds cell tower veiled as a pine tree
Posted: 12-Jan-2005 [Source: Forbes]

[Sprint and the Elks Lodge in Durham reach agreement on the building of a cell phone tower on their property by disguising it as a pine tree.]

Durham -- "People aren't really supposed to talk on the phone while they drive, but they do. So Sprint needed to build a new cell phone tower on U.S. 15-501 in Durham.

The perfect spot, the highest ground around, had been home to Lodge 568 of the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks for 37 years. But the Elks, a fraternal organization dedicated to fellowship and service, didn't want a 90-foot tall, 360-degree metal antenna in their back yard.

"We told them we would not stand for one of those towers," said Joe Fish, chairman of the Elks trustees. "
