This article is about the tree. For the elf of Doriath, see Nimloth (elf).

Nimloth the Fair was the name of the White Tree of Númenor. It grew in the King's Court in the royal palace in the capital city of Armenelos.


During the reign of Ar-Gimilzôr, the tree was neglected and fell into decline but when his successor Tar-Palantir came to the throne it was again tended. Later, sometime after SA 3262 when Sauron had the ear of the powerful king Ar-Pharazôn and after Isildur stole one of its fruits, the White Tree was felled and used as kindling in the Temple.[1]

A seedling of Nimloth was saved by Isildur and replanted in Middle-earth. This tree and its descendants would come to be called the White Tree of Gondor.[1]


The term Nimloth consists of the Sindarin terms nim ("white") and loth ("blossom").[2]
