    Any Meaning to a Crooked Tree?

    Could not find the right wording to find the post here about trees that somehow were tied or made to point in one direction, and keep pointing in that direction as they grew? Any way, is this just a natural, pleasant photo collection of a tree in the North Georgia woods of the Blue Ridge Mountain, or does this signify something? Thank you for the insight. If I am seeing things, I can accept that!

    I can go out and find numerous trees that look like that. It could either be from another tree falling on it when it was smaller and laying on it long enough for it to grow crooked or the top may have been broke off and that is a branch growing upright. I used to take pictures of crooked trees, but there were too many to bother with.

    Agreed. I see numerous trees with 90 degree turns. Most often caused as described by pa plateau hiker - older tree falls on smaller tree then eventually rots away.

    I was out hiking last Saturday in the North Georgia mountains look for a homestead I found on a 1906 map. I found the following tree, and marked it in GPS and took the following 2 photos.

    Then I decided to follow this tree in the direction it pointed. Then, maybe 100 feet later (I marked it on GPS again), I ran straight into this tree.

    I did not continue because I am recovering from hernia surgery and not supposed to overdo it, but in 2-3 weeks I plan to see if the trail continues. Any advice? Thank you.
