Belecthor continued his father's campaigns against the Corsairs of Umbar. The White Council met in 2850, where Gandalf urged an attack on Dol Guldur to drive Sauron out, but Saruman overruled him.

Belecthor was followed by his son Thorondir at his death in 2872. The White Tree of Gondor died with him.
