The Evergreen Magnolia
MAG•NOL•LIA | MAG ‘NŌLYə
A Magnolia tree remains as an EVERGREEN tree that goes through seasonal cycles. It produces seeds in the fall, protects itself in the winter and provides flowers in the spring. Widely adaptable to different climates, soils and exposures and has multiple uses from being used as food plants to medicinal uses.
Like the Magnolia tree, our business remains as an EVERGREEN business. It can endure different economic cycles due to the unique structure and multiple facets of the company. The Magnolia will always be a reminder that our EVERGREEN company needs to prepare for economic changes and symbolizes strength through a “family tree”, forever linking the past and future.
Are Planted In The Past:
A constant reminder for years to come that we are successful because we are EVERGREEN and the covenant to always continue on that path.
