馃懟 Potw贸r z lasu / Forest monster 馃懟


Sosna krocz膮ca zwana te偶 Sosn膮 na Szczud艂ach w We艂czu ko艂o Buska Zdroju to wielka osobliwo艣膰 Ponidzia. Jak g艂osi tabliczka kieruj膮ca do atrakcji, jest to sosna pospolita, ale nic bardziej mylnego :) Na trasie z Pi艅czowa do Buska Zdroju, w We艂czu pod lasem odwiedzi膰 warto unikatowe drzewo. To 100-letnia sosna pospolita rosn膮ca przy zboczu niewielkiego wzniesienia. Dlaczego jest taka dziwna? Ano kszta艂tem przypomina paj膮ka lub inne zwierz臋 z odn贸偶ami, dlatego m贸wi si臋 o niej sosna krocz膮ca.
Osobliwy kszta艂t nadaj膮 korzenie drzewa wystaj膮ce ponad powierzchni臋 i to na wysoko艣膰 a偶 3 metr贸w. Niemal ca艂y system korzeni jest tu ods艂oni臋ty, daj膮c tym samym niesamowity widok.
Ta niecodzienna sosna wygl膮da tak a nie inaczej z powodu obni偶enia poziomu terenu, spowodowanego dawn膮 eksploatacj膮 piasku w tym miejscu przez mieszka艅c贸w wsi. To ludzie ods艂onili korzenie, a reszta piasku i gleby zosta艂a wyp艂ukana przez wod臋 i wywiana przez wiatr. Dzi艣 jej korzenie jakby wisz膮 w powietrzu a pomi臋dzy nimi jest wolna przestrze艅, w kt贸rej zmie艣ci si臋 nawet kilka os贸b. To ciekawe prze偶ycie chodzi膰 pomi臋dzy korzeniami drzewa, niedost臋pne nigdzie indziej.
Co ciekawe, sosna w We艂czu jest ca艂kiem zdrowa, to pot臋偶ne i silne drzewo, a od 2002 roku stanowi pomnik przyrody. To 艣wietna atrakcja dla m艂odych odkrywc贸w.

The rolling pine also known as Sosna on the Szczudles in Welecz near Busko Zdr贸j is a great peculiarity of Ponidzie. As the tablet says to the attractions, it is a pine, but nothing more wrong :) On the route from Pi艅cz贸w to Busko Zdr贸j, in Welecz near the forest, a unique tree is worth visiting. It is a 100-year-old pine growing at the side of a small hill. Why is she so strange? Well, the shape resembles a spider or other animal with legs, which is why it is referred to as a pine tree.
A peculiar shape is given by the roots of a tree protruding above the surface and up to a height of up to 3 meters. Almost the entire root system is unveiled here, giving an amazing view.
This unusual pine looks like this and not otherwise because of the lowering of the level of the area caused by the former exploitation of sand in this place by the inhabitants of the village. It was the people who uncovered the roots, and the rest of the sand and soil were washed away by the water and blown by the wind. Today, its roots are hanging in the air and there is a free space between them, in which even a few people can fit. It's an interesting experience to walk between tree roots, not available anywhere else.
Interestingly, the pine in Welecz is quite healthy, it is a powerful and strong tree, and since 2002 is a natural monument. It is a great attraction for young explorers.
