Frankenpine is the name given to a cell phone tower that is camouflaged to resemble a pine tree. The term first garnered public attention in 2004 when the Adirondack Council, a nonprofit organization working to protect the Adirondack Park, gave a proposed tower this name. Efforts to disguise the steel tower include painting its base brown and attaching fake branches to it.
I was out for a walk with a buddy Sunday afternoon when she spotted a member of the Frankenpine family in the skyline above the JCC on Whitehall Road in Albany! I walked around the side of the building to have a better look and snapped the pic below! There are so many antennas, this creature must certainly be for more signals than cellular!
