A Symbol of our Founding

Throughout history, the tree has stood as a metaphor for knowledge, life, growth and community.

The roots provide a solid base that anchors, connects and nourishes. The trunk represents strength and wisdom while the canopy is symbolic of cultural heritage and the cycle of life.

Wood is commonly used to symbolize a strong, long-lasting relationship and the planting of a tree is usually done to honor an accomplishment, milestone or a person's life.
