Aspen trees are symbolic of families and communities in many ways. They have a unique interconnected root system that can extend over vast areas. Like families and communities, Aspen groves thrive with diversity. This becomes a protective factor for their wellness. 

When walking through an Aspen grove, you might notice marks on the trunk known as Aspen eyes. This is a stunning result of self-pruning. Shedding lower branches allows Aspen trees to direct energy towards new growth and expansion.

In times of loss and adversity, like a fire, Aspen trees continue to thrive and regenerate, demonstrating resilience in the face of change. Similarly, humans possess the capacity to experience growth and embrace new opportunities for fulfillment.  

The name "Aspen Family Wellness Center" was selected to reflect the profound narrative of the Aspen tree.
