This beautifully filmed and depressing documentary might interest you.

"A powerful man, who is also the former prime minister of Georgia, has
developed an exquisite hobby.  He collects century old trees along
Georgia's
coastline.  He commissions his men to uproot them and bring them to his
private garden. Some of these trees are as tall as 15-floor-buildings.  And
in order to transplant a tree of such dimensions some other trees are
chopped down, electric cables are shifted and new roads are paved through
mandarin plantations.

The film moves the concept of uprooting from its metaphorical meaning into
an oppressive, tangible and yet surreal reality."
