Cell Tower Concealment, Avatar Re-creations, and Urban Forests

Monopine Tree

We wrote recently about concealing cell towers with silk plants and trees, and soon after there was more news about a Chicago neighborhood evaluating concealment options for a particularly obtrusive tower in scenic Westridge. Fortunately for the community, many concerned residents have stepped up to demand that they get a high quality artificial tree solution. Done right, the cell phone tower won't be an eyesore and visitors will hardly notice it.

Silk Tree Forest Concept A fascinating proposal for a museum in Slovenia has made news recently for an unusual urban forest concept. In this concept, the exterior is made completely of glass and the interior is comprised of platform tree tops with museum-goers allowed to walk among them, not unlike the way a frog might hop along on lily pads. Accentuating the theme are the fact that these tree tops are fitted with solar panels and provide most of the energy requirements for the museum.

Artificial Tree of Souls You may have noticed the latest media blitz for Avatar now that the highest grossing moving of all time is out on DVD. It appears promoters have taken film marketing to a new level in Europe by using a large silk tree to replicate the visually stunning Tree of Souls that was almost bulldozed by the evil imperial colonialists in the movie. The silk tree required 20 miles of fiber optic cabling and was installed just in time for earth day. Not surprisingly, DVD sales quickly broke records in North America and in many countries worldwide.
