Only in Poland

Just because some things can happen only here

Four kilometers from Gryfino grows very strange and mysterious forrest – „Crooked Woods”.

Crooked Woods is about 100 tress growing on area of 0,3 ha. planted probably in 1934.

Just above the ground the trees mysteriously begins to grow horizontally, and then bends up a wide berth. All are bent in the same direction – North. In addition, the trees are particularly low, not exceeding 15 meters. Other pines around here are quite ordinary, so you can assume that this spectacular phenomenon is caused by humans.

The bends are of a length of one to three meters. There are many hypotheses trying to explain this unusual phenomenon.

The most probable theory says that trees were shaped intentionally for example, to build a boat, furniture or just for decoration.

Another theory is about the forces of nature. Young trees could be, a few years in a row, bended to the ground by heavy snow. The reason could also be the wind that pinned to the ground several hundred pines.

Of course there are also less serious theories. For example, some believe that the trees were weighed down by tanks stationed here in 1945.

The secret probably will be never solved.
