South African photographer Dillon Marsh has a beautiful series of photographs of some sad and awkward looking cell phone towers disguised as trees.

Marsh calls the series "Invasive Species" and describes the goal of the project on his site:

In 1996 a palm tree appeared almost overnight in a suburb of Cape Town. This was supposedly the world's first ever disguised cell phone tower. Since then these trees have spread across the city, South Africa and the rest of the world. Invasive Species explores the relationship between the environment and the disguised towers of Cape Town and its surrounds.
