The White Tree:
Created by Yavanna for the Elves, a seedling of
the White Tree, called Nimloth, was given to the Númenoreans,
where it grew in the Kings Court at Romenna. Just before
the downfall of Númenor, a seedling was stolen
by Isildur. It was safe on one of the of the ships
that escaped the downfall, and was first planted in
Minas Ithil. After the War of the Last Alliance, one
of the seedlings was planted in Minas Anor, later Minas
Tirith. This tree died in 1636 in the Great Plague.
Another seedling was planted after by king Tarondor.
This tree died in 2852 and no sapling or seed could
be found to replace it so it was left standing. Aragorn
found a sapling on the slopes of Mindoluin and replaced
the dead Tree, which was laid to rest in the same manner
that one of the Kings of Gondor would have been.
