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…
