Have you ever listened about Crop Circles? In the recent times, Crop Circles have spotted in Japan’s Miyazaki Prefecture. This experimental forest in Japan is creating quite a stir with its unique shape. They were formed by Japanese Cedar Trees, only viewable from above. The incredible photos of geometric designs emerged in a large mature forest.
The researchers are confused to learn how these shaped emerged? The practical explanation was the result of a scientific experiment that spanned half a century. The scenic natural formations aren’t the results of an alien invasion, but rather a well thought out a preplanned imitative.
Back in 1973, Japan’s Forestry and Fisheries (Ministry of Agriculture) started a project dedicated an area of land near Nichinan City was making an ‘experimental forestry’.
The scientist planted circles of cedars with smaller inner circles expanding incrementally into larger radiuses to create 10 perfect rings. One of the experiments was to try and measure the effect of tree spacing on growth. The experiment was carried out by planting trees in 10-degree radial circles of varying diameters.
The Crop Circles are so attractive due to their concave shape. It was an unexpected result of the experiment that would recommend tree density does indeed affect growth. The trees are due to be harvested almost five years but officials are now considering preserving the crop circles.
These images are efforts of Google Earth, however, these are very dark. The more space equals less competition for resources such as water and sunlight. Hence, it’s easier for these outer trees to grow bigger and stronger while those on the inside fight it out amongst themselves.
