The billionaire former prime minister of Georgia has developed an exquisite hobby: collecting century-old trees growing along Georgia’s coastline. He commissions his men to uproot the giant plants, which are as tall as 15-storey buildings, and bring them to his private garden. Transplanting such a tree is not an easy feat. They have to chop down other trees, pave new roads through mandarin plantations and shift electric cables.
