The Crooked Forest

This stand of bent pine trees known as the Crooked Forest is easily one
of the strangest places in Central Europe. Located outside of Nowe
Czarnowo, West Pomerania, Poland, the nearly 400 trees are widely agreed
to have been shaped by human hands sometime in the 1930s, but for what
purposes is still up for debate. Each tree is bent near the base at 90 degrees, a
form that could possibly be helpful in boat or furniture making. Strangely
enough, every tree is bent in exactly the same direction: due North. A quick
search online reveals a host of conspiracy theories ranging from witchcraft
to energy fields.
