    You can see that also in the city of Veracruz, Mexico. Or any other place with strong winds.

    Trees in England do the same. Even in land.

    Might wanna re-think your headline there...opposing the least resistance to the wind would mean maximizing the brunt of it, certainly not what the video shows...

    Parang palagi nilagyan ng three flowers pomade ang hapay.

    ...or, the trees became shaped by the wind as they grow. That seems a more reasonable explanation to me. 🤭 "Oppose" is also the wrong word here it seems and should have been, "Pose".

    living in forced harmony is a bonsai style of art...years from now, i will have my BONSAI adopt "THE WATERFALL" slopping form.

    They (the trees) know the aerodynamics. This is but natural. Every living thing has survived the same way- living in harmony and in compliance with their surroundings!
