What is behind the name?

Legend tells us that the white maple tree is a peaceful gift from the land. With its light sweet sap, beautiful hues and endurance, the white maple reminds us of the qualities of Jupiter with its balance, longevity, abundance and expansive gentleness. The white maple's serene elements give us a calm retreat; its mild-flavoured blossoms provide delicate food; and its hard wood can be used to make strong paper where words of love, hope and quietude can be imprinted as poems of awakening.
