Tree that looks like a fence

We took this picture while hiking a trail in the Horseshoe Bend Military Park.At first we thought someone had made a fence, but on farther inspection we saw that it was natural. I've never saw a tree like this before. It really does look like a fence! What do you think?

trees and plants have a kind of flexibility that is both disturbing and inspiring. left to their own devices they can wrap around objects and create strange works of unintentional art. properly pruned and cultivated they can be made into curious, compelling and useful shapes of all sorts. given time trees can grow around just about anything. historically, there are a number of legends, rumors and hoaxes regarding man-and-cow-eating trees. trees that consume people, animals or other objects have also featured prominently in various works of literary faction such as Little Shop of Horrors.

I've saw some of the pruned trees and they do look pretty cool. I believe they have shows where people prune trees and win prizes. Anyway, I've saw rabbits, and everything else made out of trees. Those are cool, but when nature does it, it's even better!
