While sitting in traffic the other day, I was looking at one of those cell 
towers that looks like a tree (a very realistic coniferous one, I might add).

Then, I looked at a vertical in my back yard next to a tall skinny 
Melaleuca tree (it's a kind of bushy eucalypt and it occurred to me that 
hams could do the same as the wireless companies, on a smaller scale.

So, the question is, where would one get suitable fake branches? Does 
anyone know anything about the design of the faux tree cell towers?  What 
kind of tree would be best to fake?  Probably want something that's fairly 
tall and skinny, but not as bushy as the Melaleuca.  Heck, it would be a 
lot safer in a fire prone area where the Melaleuca is like having a big 
oily firestarter next to your house.

(100 ft tall Palm trees?)
