The Mysterious Crooked Forest of Poland.

Mysterious Crooked Forest of Poland

It is a grove of bent pine trees in West Pomerania, Poland that has become famous for its 400 trees. The stand of trees was planted around 1930 in what was then Germany. The trees all take a sharp 90 degree turn soon after leaving the ground before sweeping back into an upright position with a graceful curve. Their strange but beautiful nature is captured perfectly below by photographer Kilian Schönberger.

It’s not certain on how or why the trees were bent, but believe that it was an intentional or a mechanical process. Others have theorized that a severe snowfall could have caused this curious phenomenon.
