Can't supply trees but a firm here in UK does the seed.
Try contacting :-
Cumbria LA12 7PB
They can supply seed of Sequoia gigantea (Wellingtonia) and Sequoia
sempervirens. The latter described as "easy from seed" and reaches 1M in
Their e-mail address is 101344.1340 at compuserve.com
I have no commercial connection but they have been providing me with all
sorts of odd seed for years. Their catalogue is a really good read (no
pictures, you make them in your mind).
I hope all is well at Herrenhauser str. I was lucky enough to spend 4
weeks in Hanover a few years back working at the Buntehof. My contact
was Dr G Trolldenier who is now connected with the Soils dept at
Herrenhauser. It would be very useful (if you come across him) to
introduce him to the e-mail system so that I can communicate.
My work e-mail is P.J.Harris at reading.ac.uk
Department of Soil Science,
The University of Reading, UK.
