"Nobody knows why," says Giorgi, who has spent his life studying the Batsaris forest and developing methods for dating the trees. "It is usual to find only one or two together."

"It is really a special feeling for me to go there. As though the trees have been waiting, wondering where I have been." He reaches out to touch one of the trees, to feel its warmth, then laughs when he finds that Russell has taken his photograph.

"I have been kissing these trees for 30 years, but nobody every knew about it until now!"
