      That's a nice tree.

      It has really good branch coverage and even slip covers on the panels so all you see is branches.
    • chuikov
      It really is a nice design. The manufacturer should be commended.

      It would blend in wonderfully if there were some real trees in the area ;). Seriously though, it looks like an industrial area, and making Sprint spring for all that extra expense seems to be unreasonable.

      At least they got the site...

      That's one of the best looking trees I've seen. Very nice. But, considering the surrounding area, it looks more out of place than a plain tower would. At least in my opinion.

      Ugh, i agree. I think a regular old tower would actually look better there!
    • larry
      They actually got this site without any public hearing which I like. It was administratively approved. The height of the tower was below the height limit for the zoning in this location so I think that's why.
    • chuikov
      Good site acquisition! Give him/her a gold star on my behalf!

      The extra $ it may have cost for the stealth were well worth avoiding a year's worth of hearings and possible rejection.

      I still really like the tree design thansk for sharing.
    • larry
      Oddly the signal is already very strong in this area so I'm a little baffled as to why they chose this location to put up another tower. My LG shows 5 bars with a -65 dbs from a nearby tower while standing under it. And no the tower is not active yet as there are no PN offsets showing up from this site yet. I would have rather Sprint had put up a tower closer to Tustin and Walnut in Orange as my phone gets down to a -93 dbs in that area.

      Larry,

      My best guess would be capacity problems. Rush hour might be a big problem if this tree is near a major route.

      Well...I have to admit that this is a great design and a great looking tree, but a tree in the middle of an industrial area with no other trees around would make me suspicious and doesn't really fit there. Sprint did a great job, I just don't understand the way the city thinks in having carriers plant trees in areas such as this one.
      I agree with chuikov that capacity issues during rush hour may be the problem since signal strength is already so good. What is the Ec/Io in the area like?
    • RJB
      Your right they should have designed a big cell phone looking crane tower.
