Another questionable story?

I'll leave this one up to the reader to decide for themself. (Warning! Contains potentially politically sensitive content: Nazi Germany).

Is this real?

Hi -

The story is actually true: turns out that in the 1930s it was quite popular for foresters, who in Germany manage the forests very intensely, choosing which trees are to grow where - can't leave such fundamentals to nature - to plant trees which turn color earlier than others in the shape of a swastika, to plant the letters AH or to plant the year of the planting as part of the forest.

Think of it as the ultimate bumper sticker. One of these is planted on the approach path to Frankfurt international airport, but is only visible for a few days each year. For those few days, approach vectors are slightly different...
