A Very Tall Pine Tree offers Cell service


We wrote back in March about Bell planning to impliment 20 new cell phone towers in Cottage Country that look like trees.

CottageCountryNow.ca wrote an article a little while ago about the new Bell cell tower that looks like a very tall Pine tree. According to their article, it is getting mixed reviews.

“I’m certainly not against the tower,” said Morris Eccles. “I’m delighted with the signal. But it has come with a tremendous cost to Bell and the environment. Not only in the trees that were cut down, a lot of which were mature, but erosion would be my main concern. Any erosion created on a high hill like that, 150 feet above the water, does make it’s way into silting into the lake.”
