My trees arrived yesterday in great condition.  Thank you for the incredible packing, that was the very best I have ever received! They are all temporarily transplanted into new containers and will do well. Cheers from Alaska, Phil

Thank you, thank you! thank you!! my trees arrived Thursday, as estimated, safe and sound. And they are beautiful! They where packed with great care, and experience. I am quite chuffed with them. I really can't say thanks enough, you have provided me with six beautiful trees. They are beautiful representatives of a proud heritage, and one day... spirits willing, these trees will become beautiful heirlooms in their own right. Thank you, You folks are simply the best! Happy growing, Chelsey Hood of Ohio

I just received my Giant Sequoia bonsai tree in the mail. It is such a beautiful tree and I am super happy and very pleased with the whole experience. I want to thank Judy for her help and great customer service. She was more than happy to help me with my order when I needed to change it. Overall great experience and I will order more from yall in the future. Thanks again.                                                                                                                                                                            Ryan Sheppard

I have bought a lot of trees online and this was by far the healthiest and best packaged tree to date. It actually wound up on my door step along with two other dead trees from a different company. I will be ordering all my future pine trees from giant-sequoia. I'm sorry I waited so long to finally buy something from this site.  Gavin Buckner

Joe, Just wanted to let you know my trees arrived Friday in perfect condition. It`s amazing that they traveled from California to Ohio in a sealed box and look so good. The packaging was outstanding and delivery was right on schedule. You run a top notch business and I look forward to doing business with you again. A++++++++++++ Thanks again, Darrell

Hi Joe, The specimen arrived on Saturday and it's the best giant I have seen for cultivation in my experience so far. Thank you very much! It has excellent taper and a very healthy vascular system.  Michael Fantus

Just wanted to send a thank you note to Welker's Grove. The tree arrived safely yesterday. It is beautiful, healthy and just as promised. It arrived by FedEx packaged well and obviously handled with care. Couldn't ask for more. The tree is already planted and looks fantastic in its new home. We will keep this wonderful tree happy and healthy from this point on. Thank you very much for everything. If we find ourselves looking for another tree, we will most definitely come to you. Regards, Jeanne and Larry Minsky

I want to thank you for my order of redwood & sequoia seedlings & bonsai tree.  The packaging was very secure which enabled the order to arrive in perfect condition.  I could tell that my order was handled with care as was my previous order. My previous order of seedlings & bonsai tree have flourished. They are so admired that I have given many away so the need to order more.Thank you again for my incredible little trees & for the professional & fantastic care I have received at Welker's Nursery.

My trees arrived today! They are so healthy and beautiful, and they were packed and shipped with such care. I just wanted to thank you. They are going to have a loving home! 

-Paul Sayre

Just wanted to take a minute to let you know I ordered the giant sequoia 825 as a 55th birthday gift for my boyfriend. He bonsais as a hobby. He was extremely pleased with his gift.The tree came just as promised, the tree was very well packaged and delivered in excellent shape. Thank you.

-Jennifer Goins

Trees got here today Joe. They look great and the soil was still wet. Nice packing job! Can't believe what great shape they're in after traveling about 2500 miles! We've already potted them up and are looking forward to watching them grow. 

-Taylor Grubb

Trees arrived yesterday. Beautiful healthy stock! I will recommend your company! Thank you. Not easy to buy for the man I have been married to for 38 years! He was speechless!

-Jan Bonfoey

Just wanted to let you know that the order arrived in prime condition and was so beautifully packed! Being interested in more obscure plants, I order a lot from online sources and have never received any plants more securely packaged. As a native Californian transplanted to the east coast, I can't tell you how much I miss these natives. Aside from the beauty and magnificence of the giant sequoia, I very much appreciate their role as a carbon sink. My wee corner of PA has a high water table so I am very hopeful that they will survive here. The smell of bay laurel in the coastal forests and Jeffery pines in the Sierras are for me closely tied to visceral memories of joy. I will let you know how they do here so you can inform other east-coasters.

-Janet Baird from Pennsylvania 

I just wanted to tell you and your staff, thank you very much. The 2 trees you sent me were shipped perfectly, and my expectations of quality were surpassed. I have transplanted them to thicken up the trunks before I shallow pot them in a couple years. I have attached a pic just for fun. I look fwd to doing business with you in the future.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the trees you sent me.They are all in good health and were packed very nice.I will be doing business with you again.Thanks again for the high quality trees.  

-Matt Manzer from Nebraska 

Hi Joe and Sharon, I just wanted to thank you for all the great trees you sent me earlier this year.  I am happy to say that they all made it through the summer and have grown quite a bit!  As I continue to clear the vines and poison ivy off the rest of my land, I will replant many more trees. I have tried 5 different nurseries and you had the best samples and customer service by far! Thanks a lot and I will be in touch next spring with my next order. I really appreciate everything. Best.

-Andrew from Delaware

Just received my bonsai. Excellent packaging! It took it a few days to get here but the soil was still moist. Thanks!

-David Hansen 

I just wanted to take a moment and let you know that the trees arrived in great shape and are now planted and doing well. Thanks for the professional manner that you handled the purchase.

-Michael Maas from California

Good afternoon. I received my package of three trees yesterday - they appear in excellent health. I believe they arrived in that condition because someone devised an ingenious way of packaging them. Thank you for the extra care.

-Robert Ulrich of Texas 

Although the shipment was delayed in transit, the seedlings arrived in apparently good shape and are already in the ground.  Your packaging is both clever and effective.  I will not hesitate to order from you again.  Thanks.

-Peter Hayes of Washington

I just wanted to let you know that everything that I planted this spring and summer is alive and well. The trees I planted a few weeks ago are also doing very well. My wife who was skeptical at first concerning the Giant Sequoias has grown quite fond of them. Each one is unique, in shape, growth habit, and color. The redwoods are also doing very well, the seedling that I planted in the spring grew 3 ft up and 2 ft out in spread in the first year, the Soquel redwood grew about a foot up and about a foot and a half out. All of the other plants that I ordered are doing great as well.

-Charles Gardner of Virginia

Hi from Texas!! I just received three redwood seedlings from you, and wanted to give you some positive feedback!! wow! I was amazed to see how green, healthy, and vibrant they were when I took them out of their shipping container. I took them out, immediately placed them in the Texas sunshine (it was in the 60s, later got up into the 70s), and immediately gave them some water from my rain bucket 

Thank you for your outstanding trees!  They arrived in excellent condition.We put them in pots until we had time to prepare their planting holes, and shaded them during the hottest hours of the day.  These had such healthy roots, and the roots started growing right away.  They have now been in the ground for 4 weeks and are doing very well. You sent very healthy stock, well packaged and ready to plant.  We especially appreciated all the instructions so we wouldn't kill them with too much fertilizer or too little water.  It is obvious you love Sequoias as much as we do. 

-Mr and Mrs. Matthews of Vancouver, WA

I just want to tell you that I really enjoy doing business with you all. All the trees that I ordered in the Spring are thriving, and I am looking forward to my new trees next week. I have had less than great experiences with other online nurseries. Every experience that I have had with you all has been wonderful. Keep up the great work, and have a great summer.

I recently purchased 10 Sequoias through your website. With the bad taste of lackluster online plant purchases still fresh in my mouth, I've grown skeptical of doing business other than with my local greenhouse. However, my experience with your company was exceptional to say the least. The price, the packaging, the directions for planting and the speed at which the shipment arrived were all top notch. Keep up the good work!

-Jake Simpkins ofOhio 

I received the seedlings today. The whole package and transaction really exceeded my expectations!

-John Guidice

Sequoia #1692 arrived in perfect shape.  Tree # 1670 purchased earlier is full of new growth.(I repotted VERY carefully and the tree responded with a half dozen new branches).  Both trees will be planted in April in Hancock NY not far from the Delaware river.  I will follow up with some pictures as they mature. 

Thanks for doing a great job with these trees, you must love your work.

-Lou Morselli of NY

I want to thank you for the order of five sequoias that I placed online last Saturday.  Your website clearly showed what you offer, your shipping was extremely prompt, the trees were well packaged, and they all arrived in excellent condition.  It is a pleasure to do business with you, which is not something that can be said about a lot of businesses these days.  Many thanks!  

-DAVID A. COUP

Hi, I received the Bonsai tree I ordered from you and I was truly impressed with the packing of the tree. The tree was also really, really nice, and I just wanted to take the time to thank you for care and dedication to preserve one of natures true legends. Thank You.

-Randy Knopf

I received the trees I ordered, yesterday, and I had to write to tell you how fantastic they are!! I am so thrilled with them that I've been bragging about them to all my friends and family (except my son-in-law, because one is a Christmas present for him). My brother asked for your website and said he'll be placing an order soon. Thanks again for the wonderful trees. They're beautiful! 

Thank you for the beautiful plants and great service. Seedlings arrived in good shape and I have had very nice experience with your nursery. Sincerely.

-Miroslav Wittberger 

I received the tree today. I wanted to comment on the excellent shipping and packing method! It's as if the tree never knew it. Please rest assured that this tree is in good hands.... Sincerely.

-Rob Driscoll

We received your beautiful Giant Sequoia yesterday and just wanted to say thank you! It is a beautiful, healthy seedling and was packaged very well. It only took two days from the time it shipped and it arrived in perfect condition. We have already planted and watered it and it is doing great. Your service is greatly appreciated!

-El Cajon, CA.

I received my 5 Sequoia seedlings today and they look great! They arrived in perfect condition and I can't believe how quickly they got here. Thank you so much for the great service. Good job!

-Bill Montague in Mass.

I received the giant sequoia in the mail last week and the tree was very healthy and the soil and root ball were still damp -very good job on shipping. Thank you for the detailed information on planting and care for the tree (both online and in the instructions provided with the tree). Last year I lost a two year old sequoia I had in a pot and after I read your information I am almost positive it was from dehydration. I have planted this tree in the ground and watered as recommended. After one week the tree is looking as healthy as ever. Thank you Welker's Grove Nursery!

-Nathan from Salt Lake City Utah

This is a bit late… but just wanted to let you know that the three sequoia seedlings I received from you back in January are doing very nicely here in May near Atlanta, Georgia. They have already grown almost 10 inches in height so far and appear healthy. They have peaked the interest of several folks I’ve shown them to. Again, thanks for great service and a beautiful product. Regards, Carl.

-Carl Olson, Jr. CerelogicSM, Inc. 

I received the most beautiful tree I ever laid eyes just about a week ago. I was just wondering how old item #1157 is. That way when it gets real big we can know for sure how old it is. Also I would like to compliment you on how nice the tree arrived. Best plant I ever bought from any nursery. I also like how I was able to pick the exact tree I wanted, no other sites let you do that. Thanks Giant-Sequoia. 

Kim and Chuck from Ohio sent this message:

Our son just received his tree yesterday and planted it in his yard. Thank you for the extrordinary quality of your trees, as well as sending to our son's home. We can't thank you enough!!!

Joe: Just wanted to say how happy I am with the landscape size Sequoia purchased recently. Special thanks to your packer, it arrived in perfect condition, not so much as a broken branch tip.Given the size and quality of the sapling this is a great bargain for $37. including shipping. It must be extra work for you but allowing your customers to select the actual plant ordered is a very cool touch.  

Thanks I have just received my second sequoia tree. arrived in outstanding condition . packing a live tree sending from California to Michigan it unreal how they look like you just went and got it at a nursery Thanks Again.

-Tom Sharp 

The seedlings arrived in excellent condition. So healthy...so green. I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase from you. It is the 1st time I have ever seen a sequoia & I will take excellent care of them. Just wanted to thank you & let you know how pleased I am with my purchase. It has been a pleasure doing business with you. Thanks so much. Have a great day. Sincerely.

-Barb Mortellaro

-Andrew

Thank you very much for the expeditious response to my order! Kudos to your company, as it has been difficult to obtain any response from the other online giant sequoia seedling companies. Best regard.

-Jason R. Saucier 

Hi Joe the sequoia that you sent was beautiful. It will fit perfectly in the japanese rock garden that I will create in the spring. Thanks.

-Glenn

Hi Joe, I just now received my trees. You packaged them very well and shipped them very fast. It has been a pleasure to do business with you. I aim to come back again. I am only keeping one, well maybe two, of these trees. I am sending the rest out as gifts. I wanted to let you know I just came from giving you a positive feedback and wanted to thank you for mine. I hope you have a great day.

-Cindy

This is Eric. I ordered a bonsai tree from you for a xmas gift for my friend who goes to school in Ohio. I just wanted to say thank you so much for the tree. She loved it!!!! It arrived here on Saturday Dec. 24 just in time for Christmas. The look on her face was priceless and she kept saying "this can't be a redwood"! Your redwood bonsais are as asset to the bonsai community and to tree lovers around the world. Thank you again for everything and I hope to do business with you again in the future. I will recommend you to everyone that I talk to who are interested in bonsai and redwoods in general. Thank you again and hope you had a very merry Christmas. Sincerely.

-Eric 

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for the most beautiful Giant Sequoia tree I have ever seen! It was obviously packaged with care, dare I say "love!" Shipping was very fast and communication was great! I will recommend Welkers to ALL of my friends! It is truly a wonderful specimen! Welkers is obviously THE place to buy if you want the best! Please feel free to list this on your future auctions. =)

-Tony Rosario

Hi, Joe. Just wanted to let you know that the trees arrived today, and they are *magnificent*. Thank you!

Hi, I bought a giant sequoia from you last year and it's doing great. I watered it faithfully all summer, about two gallons twice a day. The last time I measured, it was 48" tall. I'm going to buy another one from you when the ground warms up next spring. Should I use some fertlizer or plant food to help it grow. We have good black soil here (in Nebraska) but I want to make sure it has everything it needs. I want to buy another one as soon as the ground warms up next year. Thanks.

-Kurt
