The crooked forest: Fantasy woodland that could have come straight from a fairytale
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
A boabab tree (Adansonia digitata) is also known as the tree of life. It lives in the dry savannas of India and Africa. It can grow up to 80 feet tall, and up to 40 feet in diameter, with compact, irregular crown, and can live for several thousand years. The medicinal properties of the baobab fruit are the stuff of African legend, and the fruit is becoming popular in Europe.
