I will be the first to admit that this is DNMC, for there is nothing organic here. HOWEVER.... I think it is a great example of "Nature at its most urban form"!

This is a cell phone tower, one of many scattered throughout the Los Angeles basin. I suppose there must be other cell towers out there designed as trees, but I have only seen Palms, so I imagine their use is limited to places like here, Hawaii and Florida. Anyone else have Cell Trees?

This certainly does look like the Borg are assimilating plants now.
