We all know that there is a basic shape for trees. They have their trunks standing straight from the end of the roots until the beginning of branches. At least, that’s what we draw when we are still children when our teachers asked us to draw a tree.
However, there are actually trees, which grow against the law of nature. They are 400 pine trees growing in northwest part of Poland. For a mysterious reason, the bottom part of the trunks (near to the roots) bend to the north. However, about some meters above the ground, the trunks grow normal just like other trees. The trees look like reversed question marks because of the weird shape.
The curved pines were said to start growing in 1930. It was said that at the beginning, they grew normal like other trees, but about seven until ten years later, they were held down by human, possibly for furniture business or other reasons. It’s never clear who bent them and why. It’s because soon after the Second World War came, the people who were responsible for the trees abnormality abandoned the trees and whatever plans they had, leaving the forest a mystery.
Why do you think they are bent?
