EUGENE, Ore. — A new kind of tree may soon sprout in a south Eugene neighborhood.
AT&T is eyeing property at Crossfire Ministries on Amazon Drive as the potential site of a new cell tower called a monopine, which looks like a tree. The church says this isn’t the first time it’s had interest, but this is the furthest that talks have gone.
“Our stipulation when it came to AT&T was it had to be very stealth,” says Crossfire’s lead pastor Aaron Taylor, who says the church doesn’t want the tower to stand out negatively in the community.
If it all pans out, Crossfire Ministries says it plans on making sure that other carriers are able to get on the same tower.
