WHILE RECENTLY VISITING VACOUVER ISLAND, WE COULD NOT HELP BUT FALL-IN-LOVE WITH THE SEQUOIA GIGANTEA TREE.

CAN YOU PROVIDE A PRICE ON THIS TREE?

CAN YOU TELL ME IF IT IS SUITABLE TO GROW IN THE NOVA SCOTIA REGION?

ANY INFORMATION YOU CAN PROVIDE WILL BE APPRECIATED.

It appears you are in hardiness zone 6a. According to the Arbor Day web site, giant sequoia, Sequoiadendron giganteum, is hardy in zones 6 to 8, so you should be OK, at least hardiness-wise. The plant needs full sun and moist, acidic soils, so if you can provide it with these conditions, and you have room for a large tree, then give it a try. Learn more about the plant here:
