Dead Tree

Revision as of 21:14, 9 January 2008 by Tik (Talk | contribs)

The Dead Tree (Third Age 2872 – 3019; the snag stood for 147 years) was the last of the White Tree of Gondor, which died at the same time as Belecthor II the twenty-first Ruling Steward. For lack of a seedling, the Dead Tree was left standing in the courts of Minas Tirith until King Aragorn Elessar found a new seedling on Mount Mindolluin in 3019.
