No, we're not talking about Tolkien here. In the composite photo to the right (click to enlarge), the image on the left is of the Putnam Valley cell tower. The image on the right is of the cell tower at the north end of Croton-on-Hudson.
Now, I understand that they're trying to, uh, hide their tower by making it blend into the environment. I'd say they've quite failed: the thing on the right seems to be almost, but not completely, unlike a tree. Rather, it could have come right out of the darkest depths of Mordor. I don't know about you, dear reader, but I find old Minas Morgul there on the right to be far more obtrusive and ugly than the plain tower on the left. (And I'm happy that it's the one on the left that's near my house, and that my eyes are seldom assaulted by the one on the right.)
The New York times once reported on a cell tower in Arizona "disguised" as a saguaro cactus, which, the Times said, might resemble a real cactus if viewed from Wyoming.
Open message to cell-tower builders: Trying to camouflage your towers is like trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work, and it annoys the pig.
Update, 13 July: And, hey, check out this Washington Post article.
