Mysterious Crooked Forest by dailymail: Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing trees near Gryfino, north-west Poland, the 'Crooked Forest' - is a mystery. The curved pines, of which there are about 400, were planted around 1930 and were allowed to grow for 7-10 years before being held down in what is thought to have been some kind of human mechanical intervention. The outbreak of the WWII interrupted the plans of whoever was tending the grove. Hence the mystery. #Crooked_Forest
Ash Tree - Druids wands were made of ash twigs. It also has healing properties. Weak-limbed children were passed through split ash trees which were then bound up. If the tree grew straight, the child would as well.
