Mysterious Crooked Forest in Gryfino, Poland

A small area of a crooked forest near Gryfino in West Pomerania, Poland is host to 400 pine trees having the trunks bent at 90 degrees in the base. All of them are bent towards the North and these actually are surrounded by a large forest having pine trees that are growing straight. This crooked or curved or bent collection of pine trees poses a huge mystery.

Research shows that these plants were planted around 1930. The trees were allowed to grow for 7-10 years before they were harvested for wood to be used in mechanical purposes. Some of the locals are of the belief that purpose of growing these trees was to use the wood in boat hulls and furniture by carpenters from the German Special Forces around 1930’s. But then the chaos broke out due to World War 2 in 1939 and they never got a chance to harvest the wood from these trees.

Whatever the fact is, it still is a mystery why the farmers of these trees would grow them crooked or bent in such a way and in such high number. What purpose these trees was supposed to serve for them and how they did it so perfectly to give this shape to the trees?
