Why the name RiseOak?

Oak Tree symbol for RiseOak

We chose the name RiseOak for our company as we stand for massive growth built on a solid foundation like a rising Oak tree.  The Oak tree starts from a tiny plant and grows into a gigantic tree.  This growth is stable, and these trees last for thousands of years.  Similarly, at RiseOak we create massive growth built on a solid long lasting foundation.
