Poland's Crooked Forest


Around 1930, this tiny forest of about 400 pine trees was planted in a small area of Poland.  Apparently it's not remembered why, after about 7-10 years of growth, someone pushed them down and held them so that they would bend and grow that way.

I'm sure there is plenty of speculation.  What do you think?  Why would you do something like that in that time frame.  I know I've got ideas.  Would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. In college I knew an artist who did environmental art. In one instantance she went out in the woods where new saplings were growing from a clear cut and she created a long arch by clearing a small path and braiding the remaining overhead ones together. I can imagine the surprise someone might have finding that area some years later.
