The Leaning Tree…

by on May.24, 2016, under Life, Photography

The Greenough Leaning Trees are scattered throughout the Shire of Greenough approximately four hours north of Perth.

Driving along the Brand Highway these leaning tree’s dot the landscape, they appear to be growing perfectly well… just sideways!

This bizarre natural phenomenon is caused by the airborne salt content blown in with the winds off the Indian Ocean. The tree trunks lie horizontal to the ground and have become somewhat of an icon for the area.

Most of the trees are out in private property but you can see many of them as you drive south along the Brand Highway. There’s even a tourist spot dedicated to stopping and viewing this leaning tree right next to the highway.
