The facility will be camouflaged as a pine tree, including branching, needle socks, and paint. Panel antennas would be installed at a tip height of 98’-0”, with the remaining height needed for a faux “crown” to adequately conceal the antennas and maintain a silhouette mimicking a natural pine tree.
