The Two Trees by Peter Xavier Price

Ezellohar, also called Corollairë, was the Green Mound before the western gates of Valmar, the city of the Valar. After being hallowed by Yavanna and watered by the tears of Nienna, it was the place where the Two Trees of Valinor grew.[1] Later Melkor and Ungoliant came to Ezellohar and attacked the Two Trees and Ezellohar was blackened.[2]

[edit] Etymology

The name Ezellohar (pron. [eˈzelːoxar]) is Vanyarin for "Green Mound", containing the element ezel, ezella, ezello ("green").[3][4] Ezellohar was derived from the Valarin name Ezellôchâr.

Corollairë (pron. [ˌkorolˈlaɪre]) is a Quenya name, which appears to be a compressed version of Coron Oiolairë or "Mound of Ever-summer" (from coron, "mound"[5] and oio, "ever"[6] plus lairë, "summer"[7]).
