I can say this for Welkers. I sent for four abies procera, (Noble firs) and they were very likely the most professionally packaged nursery stock that I have ever received by UPS. They were so well packed that no matter what UPS did to them, they arrived in great shape.

I ordered a giant sequoia last winter and requested that it be shipped in early April to Michigan - it arrived on the exact date I requested. Unfortunately, we got 6 inches of snow that day so I had to wait awhile to plant it, but the company did exactly what I asked.

I love ordering from Welker's nursery and have always gotten good email responses from them. Over a 3 year period I have ordered quite a few trees from their Giant-sequoia.com website. These trees include a giant sequoia, incense cedars, Arizona cypresses, coast and dawn redwoods. The trees do get a little root bound in their tubes and especially in their small pots on an A1 size; however, this is not an issue specific to this nursery as it is a common occurrence regardless of the nursery. It is up to the knowledgeable consumer to untangle and root prune as needed to ensure a healthy tree free of girdling roots. The bigger the tree the more entangled and girdled roots you find which is why tube size trees are so much better to manage and plant.

I ordered three Giant Sequoia seedlings (2013 planted) from Welker's Grove Nursery that arrived in very healthy condition at about 18" tall, ready for planting even at this time of summer. The feeder roots were excellent condition, and I was able to cut away the seedling container and place the trees in larger pots without disturbing the root ball, a must with these trees. I received the trees in 2 days as per mailing instructions, and the trees were solidly packed in newspaper, and their roots were moist. I'm very satisfied. I would recommend this retailer to a friend. However, read up on the care of Giant Sequoias on the company website and follow the directions precisely as written when ordering.

Ordered 3 Noble Fir (Abies Procera) seedlings. Trees were shipped promptly and were as-described (in growing tubes and within size range). Arrived in good condition. Shipping tracking information was provided.
