Crooked Forest

crooked forest

This crooked forest is located in western Poland. There is a small forest where about 400 pine trees grow with a 90 degree bend right at the base of the tree truck, and all bend towards the north for some reason.

The trees in the¬†crooked forest were planted in 1930, and were ‘held down’ by farmers in the first 10 years of growth (for some unknown reason). I think they look weird, but great. I suppose they’d make fantastic benches
