From Wikipedia. The Dwarf Beech, Fagus sylvatica Tortuosa Group, is a rare Cultivar Group of the European Beech with less than 1500 older specimens in Europe. It is also known as Twisted Beech or Parasol Beech. It is a wide-spreading tree with distinctive twisted and contorted branches that are quite pendulous at their ends. With its short and twisted trunk the Dwarf Beech grows more in width than height, only seldom reaching a height of more than 15 m. It sometimes grows from seed and has formed colonies in Sweden ("Vresboken"), Denmark ("Vrange břge"), Germany ("Süntel-Buchen") and France ("Fau de Verzy"). A similar form is the Weeping Beech (Fagus sylvatica Pendula Group), which has more pendulous branching.

They look like dancing trees.
