Tree Twists = Sasquatch?

Posted by: John Kirk on February 4th, 2015

I completely agree with my good friend Thomas that twisted trees and other phenomena are not proof of sasquatch’s existence or presence. The only proof is sasquatch itself. So far the PG film and a variety of tracks are the only acceptable evidence the sasquatch is a living, breathing organism.

Thomas Steenburg weighs in on purported Sasquatch evidence:

Twisted Trees, Shelters and Other Claims

I have noticed, especially since the wide-spread use of the internet, that claims of structures, nests, shelters, twisted trees and many other things have been put forward by many in the Sasquatch field as an established fact.

I, myself, have come across many such strange things out in the bush while searching for evidence. Their existence I cannot deny, however what I have NOT found is any evidence, whatsoever, that the Sasquatch had anything to do with them. Personally, I think that when an idea or possibility is repeated often enough, and over a length of time, many start to assume such possibilities as established facts, even though there really has been no evidence to support such assumptions.

The twisted tree theory goes way back to its origin in Northern California during the Pacific Northwest Expedition. The late Robert Titmus first made the suggestion when he noticed the tops of small trees broken off, and wondered if Bigfoot was the cause; perhaps a marker of some kind? He was never really convinced of this, he just wondered at the possibility. And yes, I did know the late Robert Titmus, and had discussed this issue with him on a number of occasions.
