Wind does some amazing things...

It'd be like that here if the wind always came from the same direction, but we have gales from all directions so if anything there will be no branches left at all :lol:

Seen this page posted here before :wink:

The trees are Monterey Cypress, from the Pacific coast of California (where the wild ones show similar shapes).
