Funky Tree

I found this tree growing along the Kautz Creek trail last weekend. This area has been subject to flooding, mudslides, erosion, etc. for decades (probably centuries, but I haven't seen records for before 1947's flood).

What do you think caused this tree to grow like this???


  1. He shaved against the grain, rather than with the grain. Happens to me all the time.

  2. Something was lodged up against it for a while? Very interesting though.

  3. I agree with the something in the crook that either deteriated,washed away or was dislodged somehow. It certainly is unusual.
