As the saying goes, a small tree cannot be straight without repairing, but what I did not expect is that the tree can bend into this posture:
Not just one, but hundreds of pine trees in the entire forest showed this strange curve. At the same time, no one knows what caused them to assume this shape:
This forest is called "Curved Forest" and is located in western Poland. Most of the curved trees were planted in the 1930s, and they are now around 80 or 90 years old.
In the early growth process of these pine trees, their trunks turned sharply, then turned back, and re-grown vertically upwards at a height of about 1-3 meters. What's interesting is that they all bend in the same direction:
Another strange thing is that the trees around the curved forest are all straight, creating a strange and mysterious scene.
So... the question is, what have these trees gone through? Is the earth growing a question mark?
And the other way around: ¿
Netizens have a lot of brain holes after reading, and some throw the pot to aliens:
Some guesses may be nuclear weapons:
Of course, many people are still reasoning seriously.
Some netizens call it Christmas tree blight, which literally means Christmas tree blight. They believe that the lumberjacks did not completely let the trees lose their vitality after cutting down the trees. The rest of the trees rejuvenated and the new trees grew crooked.
But this is difficult to explain, why do all the trees bend to one side?
A widely spread theory is that there is a problem with gravity near this forest, which causes plants to appear distorted.
Of course, this kind of speculation is too science fiction, and there is no theoretical support. Opponents believe that this bending is horizontal rather than downward. So some people complained, it is better to say that it is the big tree hiding skills when the waist flashed.
Another widely spread view is that these trees were bent by tanks during World War II.
Time and environment can correspond, they think these tanks run over young trees, and then completely change their growth trajectory.
But there is no explanation why the surrounding pine forests were not affected, and the crushed pine trees survived in the same posture. This possibility is not high.
There is also a similar view that when this forest was still a sapling, there may have been a strong snowstorm hitting here, causing too much snow on the trunk and causing the trees to grow crooked. It is said that this kind of situation has occurred in Canada.
(A strangely curved tree in Springbank Park, Canada)
Only this conjecture can explain the bending, but it also cannot explain why the collective bending is so uniform, and the surrounding pine forests are not affected.
Unless there is an ice mage who only put skills in this area.
I have guessed the supernatural, unintentional rolling, and natural rolling. Guess and guess. The most reliable idea at the moment is only for humans. That is to say: the original residents here deliberately bent the trees.
As for why it is necessary to do this, everyone has analyzed many reasons. The foreign media iflscience has found a use, that is, it may be used for shipbuilding.
They found an article called "Wooden Ship Construction", which introduced a similar situation. That is, in order to make trees produce so-called natural bent wood, people will deliberately bend big trees, but the article mentioned should be other types of trees.
But a more practical guess is that it can be used to make furniture, such as rocking chairs:
Of course, following this line of thought, you can also guess that this is for making crutches:
In short, although there is no definite answer yet, this idea should be the most reliable:
For some reason, people here often plant trees like this, but because of the war, local people stopped related activities, and this "question mark woodland" was built a few decades later.
In fact, if you refer to the situation in other regions, the possibility of human manipulation is really great, because similar examples are not uncommon.
In North America, many Native Americans will force saplings to grow abnormally through deliberate bending and fixing methods, which are used to mark the direction of resources, such as marking roads, streams, and where certain plants grow.
This may explain the fact that there are many trail trees in North America, which are more exaggerated than the curves in the curved woods.
Such trees have also appeared in popular games.

In addition, there are many artists like Axel Erlandson who are obsessed with making trees grow into various complex shapes through grafting and controlling the growth rate. The following are all called "tree circus."
Perhaps these works will also be regarded as unsolved mysteries by future people.
