Mysterious Crooked Forest in Poland

No, no, I’m not on the set on some Fairytale movie. The oddly shaped trees you see behind me are totally real! And there are 400 of these mysterious pine trees, here in a suburb called ‘Gryfino’ in the ‘Zachodniopomorskie’ (try saying that!) province of Poland. All of them have the same northward 90-degree bend at the base of their limb, and have grown to be tall and seemingly unhampered by their C shape curves.

Some experts believe that the trees grew like this because they incurred some sort of damage to the tip and along some side branches. Well I think there’s something more than nature at play here because they’re all uniformly deformed! There are a lot of theories about this, like snow storms, or even intentional damage to make furniture. Even the locals here haven’t a clue as to the origin of these mysterious crooked trees. That’s probably because the local town was devastated during World War I and wasn’t rebuilt until the 1970s, by new settlers I suppose. I, however, think that a witch or wizard had something to do with these trees. I mean, how else do you explain 22 rows of crooked trees surrounded by completely normal trees?
