They bend, but don't break

Live oak trees in the Deep South region of the USA can take some very interesting shapes. Besides being a haven for the South's signature Spanish Moss, their massive limbs can grow into all sorts of very climb-able patterns. Ask any kid in South Texas, South Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Florida...
