A captivating grove of strange-shaped trees, surrounded by a forest of straight growing pine trees, has for years, still a much-discussed topic of speculation.
A veil of mystery surrounds the bizarre collection of curved trees named the ‘Crooked Forest’ planted in the late 1920s or early 1930s. The Crooked Forest is a protected pine forest located near the Polish town of Gryfino, in the northwest of the country.
Comprised of several acres, the unique crooked shape of more than 400 mysterious pines have the same 90-degree bend northward at their base. Despite the bend, the trees have grown tall and undamaged. Curiously, the Crooked Forest is enveloped by a larger forest of straight growing pine trees.
The Crooked Forest is one of the mysterious natural landmarks. Despite the many different theories proposed over the years, no one truly knows what caused the trees to adopt this conformation.
