Our family name hails from Germany and translates as lead tree in English. Since we have great pride for our family, and since our last name is incredibly hard to pronounce, we have taken LeadTree as our business name.
The lead in LeadTree is pronounced like the metal, not like being the head of a line. There is an actual tree called the Lead tree that is found in Mexico and Central America. Since the tree grows incredibly fast, is very drought resistant, and produces seeds quickly, it has been labeled as invasive and not allowed to be grown in the United States.
Like the Lead tree, our family grows fast (both our boys are over 6 feet tall)! Unlike the Lead tree, we are not invasive. We are peaceful and passive people who believe in the good of all man-kind.
