Where We Find Inspiration

Our firm’s GoldenLeaf™ Philosophy was inspired by the Gingko Bilobatree, the oldest living seed plant, dating back some 286 million years. Symbolizing the unity of opposites, the sacred tree, which can live longer than 3,000 years, has long inspired artists and poets with its dignity, longevity and beautiful leaves, which turn golden in the autumn. Heralded as the “bearer of hope” following its miraculous comeback at Hiroshima, the tree is extremely resilient to adverse atmospheric conditions, is able to thrive in urban areas and has been scientifically proven to cure human ailments, including cancer. The world’s largest plantation of Gingko trees, totaling some 10 million, is located in South Carolina.
