This article is about the the tree. For the Sindarin elf, see Celeborn.

Celeborn was the scion of the tree Galathilion, planted in Tol Eressëa where it flourished.[1] During the Second Age, the Elves of Tol Eressëa brought one of Celeborn's seedlings to Númenor, which would grow into Nimloth, the White Tree of Númenor.[2]


The name Celeborn consists of the Sindarin terms celeb ("silver") and orn ("tree").
