Why a tree?
Our logo illustrates how life - just like a tree - goes through different phases. A tree blooms in the spring, carries fruits during summer and autumn and in the winter the fruits are gone and the leaves fall of. We humans also go through biological stages in our lives from conception to death. Today, we live longer than ever before. In the senior years we experience a higher risk of age-related diseases that reduce the quality of life significantly.
