I ran across this picture somewhere online. It didn't say what it was or where. I'd kinda like to know if this forest exists or is this something photoshopped. It's kinda neat if it is real. Give me a guess.

Sometimes the obvious is the easiest, Tim...I used Google images and entered Forest of J shaped trees in Europe...obvious because if something of that nature was in the US, there would be tons of pictures of it and a McDonalds next door.GRIN

Scots Pine is native there, though this is a forestry plantation, not natural forest.
