Galathilion was a tree grown by the Vala Yavanna from a seed of Telperion, but unlike Telperion it did not give off any light. It stood in the open courtyard beneath the Tower of Ingwë in Tirion, in Valinor.

From this tree came Celeborn of Tol Eressëa, and from that came, much later, Nimloth of Númenor and the White Tree of Gondor.[1]

Etymology Edit

The name Galathilion means "White tree-moon". It had many other names including the White Tree, the Tree of Silver, the Tree of the High Elves, the Tree of Túna, and the Tree of Tirion.
