June 28, 2011 -- In a tiny corner of western Poland a forest of about 400 pine trees grow with a 90 degree bend at the base of their trunks - all bent northward. Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing pine trees this collection of curved trees, or "Crooked Forest," is a mystery.
Planted around 1930, the trees managed to grow for seven to 10 years before getting held down, in what is understood to have been human mechanical intervention. Though why exactly the original tree farmers wanted so many crooked trees is unknown.

Ask what they might have used curved wood for in that area in the 1930's and you might find your answer maybe?
Would sure beat soaking it and then using vice and pressure to bend the wood a little.

Maybe they were trying to break into the Swiss Alpine Horn market.
