I think they were molded to that shape to make Harp frames, Some folks from Austria were involved I do believe or was it France?

You have my attention. But I believe that happened from dinosaur’s trampling on them when they were very young trees.
I start my diet and exercise every morning, but try to end it in the evening before it gets too late.

Klaus,

This definitely looks like human intervention. It certainly is a unique forest, but not nearly as beautiful as a beach in Akumal, Yucatan, where the palms were all bent over just about the right height to sit on. Some day I’ll come across the photo and post it. Breath-taking!

Very interesting Klaus. As a tree expert I can confirm that those are BELLY PINE.

Quite a coincidence, I’m starting my diet on Monday too. I’m not sure which one.

This may help explain the mystery as these instruments used to be made from spruce trees bent at the base .
