Crooked Forest

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

The tress are believed to have been planted around 1930. It is also believed that the bending was caused by some form of human intervention, most likely by some tool or machine. But nobody actually knows for sure how it was done and what the motive behind it was.

Location: Outside Nowe Czarnowo, West Pomerania, Poland.
