Taur-na-neldor

A forest of lost Beleriand

Map of Taur-na-neldor

A name meaning 'forest of beeches', whose red-golden autumn leaves were lamented by Treebeard the Ent. Better known as Neldoreth, this forest was part of Thingol's realm of Doriath in the heart of Beleriand. Taur-na-neldor was destroyed at the end of the First Age, and so for Treebeard to remember it at the end of the Third, his memory of must have reached back across more than six thousand years.
