Hi Helge,
Can't supply trees but a firm here in UK does the seed.
Try contacting :-
Chiltern Seeds,
Bortree Stile,
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 
first year.
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
