The red-jewelled rowan-tree

"O Orofarnë, Lassemista, Carnimírië!"
From Bregalad's lament for the rowans
The Two Towers III 4

An Elvish word meaning 'red-jewelled', presumably referring to the clusters of brilliant red berries grown by rowan-trees. It was one of the names used by Bregalad the Ent in the sad song he made in memory of the rowans of his home, cut down by the Orcs.
