In North America, there is an amazing anomaly or even
a real mystery, about which, however, few know even
among the locals.
Normal observer hundreds or even thousands in a strange way
curved trees scattered across the mainland will seem
random errors of nature, deformed due to disease.
However, more careful analysis and numerous comparisons allow
determine that there is one undoubted pattern.
The trunks of mysterious trees have a rectangular bend, and
each such fracture is strictly parallel to the ground. Because of this many
experts suggest that these plants were
specially bent by someone a long time ago with a definite purpose. By
opinion of other theorists, we have the result of higher
mind (perhaps even an alien), a mystical anomaly, or
simply inexplicable and localized natural phenomenon.
Riddle of “route trees”
Tilted, split and otherwise deformed trees
are found everywhere, however, so-called “route trees”, up to
still growing in North America, are a real phenomenon.
At a distance of about 1.2-1.5 meters above the ground tree trunk
bent at an angle of 90 degrees, then straightened back,
forming a kind of “knee”. Scientists report that this form
can be achieved in a natural way, but not in our case.
The fact is that all “route trees” are missing
any scars on the ground bends, however if the plants
acquired “knees” by themselves, scars will certainly
would be present. From this, people of official science conclude that
the trees were curved many centuries ago by man. Most

Indians were engaged in that direction

Perhaps hunters and gatherers over many generations

it took many years, but the result was durable.
Even today, some deer and elk hunters are guided

In the 1930s and 1940s, American geologist and writer Raymond
Jansen traveled 13 states, studying the “route trees”. Specialist
concluded that the bends of their trunks are not a natural phenomenon,
therefore we are talking about cultural artifacts. However, even in
