The maple tree.

The maple tree is a symbol of patience, hope, growth, and strength. Our founder, Roger Littlepage, was four years old when he planted a maple seedling:

My grandma showed me a small seedling that most people would think was just a weed. I really wanted my own climbing tree, so I asked if I could plant it in
My grandma showed me a small seedling that most people would think was just a weed. I really wanted my own climbing tree, so I asked if I could plant it in

my front yard. Every night, I prayed that the tree would grow. My parents wrestled with wanting me not to get my hopes up because the seedling was probably dead and wouldn't turn into a big, strong tree. But they didn't want to crush their boy's spirit.

I was just a small child, but I had faith and knew the seedling would grow. And it did. Soon it was the biggest tree in the neighborhood. Eventually, it outgrew our small yard. That once small seedling had roots so deep and healthy, it was almost impossible to remove.

That maple tree has always been a reminder to me through hardships and struggles, that anything is possible. This is what I wanted to name my company, because I hope Maple Tree can become an encouragement to everyone we come in contact with.
