In a tiny corner of western Poland a forest of about 400 pine trees grow with a 90 degree bend at the base of their trunks - all bent northward. Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing pine trees this collection of curved trees, or "Crooked Forest," is a mystery.
Mysterious Crooked Forest by dailymail: Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing trees near Gryfino, north-west Poland, the 'Crooked Forest' - is a mystery. The curved pines, of which there are about 400, were planted around 1930 and were allowed to grow for 7-10 years before being held down in what is thought to have been some kind of human mechanical intervention. The outbreak of the WWII interrupted the plans of whoever was tending the grove. Hence the mystery. #Crooked_Forest
