Valley of Square Trees

Square Trees

El Valle de Anton is a small town in Panama.In the foothills of Cerro Gaital behind Hotel Campestre, are a group of trees that have grown with square trunks. Even the tree rings are square. The trunk is square at the base but then becomes round as it moves upward, taking on the look of a normal tree. so far there is no direct explanation why the tree trunks are square, with hard right angles.
