Nísimaldar was the country around the haven of Eldalondë on Númenor's western coasts. It was the only place in Númenor where mallorn trees grew brought by Tol Eressëa, and it was from the stock of these that the Golden Wood of Lórien came.

Etymology

The name means 'Fragrant Trees', and it was so called because of the great variety of rare and beautiful trees that grew there.
