The maple is a deciduous tree of the maple family

which grows in North America, Asia, Europe, and North Africa.

The maple trees which grow in the U.S.

and Canada are the sugar maple and the large-leaf maple.

They may reach up to 30~35 meters in height and produce

their famous leaves during summer.

These North American maple trees are often planted

for shade, yet within the broad-leaved tree timber industry,

maple trees are listed as the third highest ranking timber

produced for use in flooring, furniture, and other wooden

products. In addition, the sugar maple tree supplies

maple syrup.

As explained above, the maple is very familiar among

North Americans, especially in Canada, where the leaf is

the symbol of the country.

We chose the leaf of the maple as the symbol for our clinic

because of its sense of stability and the peacefulness

it brings to all people.
