Tree of Túna

The White Tree of Tirion

A White Tree made by Yavanna in the image of Telperion, the elder of the Two Trees of Valinor. It stood in the courts of High King Ingwë, beneath his great tower. The tree was given the name Galathilion, though it was also known as the Tree of Tirion or the Tree of Túna (after the hill on which the city of Tirion stood). This White Tree was the ancestor of all the White Trees of Eressëa, Númenor and Middle-earth that followed.
