A name given by Treebeard to his home, the dense and ancient Forest of Fangorn. The name comes from the Elvish for 'black forest', a reference to the deep darkness that lay between the trees. Tauremorna is related to another word for the forest used by Treebeard, Aldalómë, which means 'tree-twilight'.
