This study was carried out in a plantation with Giant sequoia [Sequoiadendrongiganteum(Lindl.) Bucholz], planted by “Lindgren’s Family ” in Turkey. Averages of the seedling height and root-collar diameter at planting were 13.3 cm and 3.7 mm, respectively, and 118.5 cm and 53.5 mm at the fourth year after plantation at Isparta. Seedlings showed large differences for the traits. Only one seedling (7%of total seedling) had died at the end of fourth year. Results of the study were discussed for future plantation of the species.
