Nimloth was the White Tree which grew in the King's Court of Númenor. It was brought as a gift by the Eldar from Tol Eressëa, in the form of a seedling from Celeborn and planted in Armenelos as a symbol of friendship between the two races. Soon after S.A. 3262, it was cut at the instigation of Sauron and his wood used to lit the first flames in the fire of the new religion which worshipped Melkor. However, the night before Isildur stole a fruit from the tree and when he escaped the Downfall of Númenor he took it with him towards Middle-earth. Later he planted it in the courts of Minas Tirith and from that seedling grew the White Tree of Gondor.
