Crooked forest. Poland
This grove of approximately 400 pines was planted around 1930. It is generally believed that some form of human tool or technique was used to make the trees grow this way, but the method and motive are not currently known. It has been speculated that the trees may have been deformed to create naturally curved timber for use in furniture or boat building. Others think that a snowstorm could have knocked the trees like this, but to date nobody knows what really happened to these pine trees.
