    The Crooked Forest outside Nowe Czarnowo, Poland is a grove of about 100 pines planted around 1930. Each tree bends sharply to the North just above ground level, then curves back upright.

    All over the globe, forests still cover approximately 30% of the planet's land area and account for 75% of the gross primary productivity of the Earth's biosphere, containing 80% of the world's plant biomass.

    Since the dawn of time, the wonderous masses of trees have attracted humans, who have also generally decreased the amount of forests worldwide.

    Only 20% of the world's original forests remain intact in large tracts.
