The North Moors lay along the northern border of the Shire in the Northfarthing.[1] It was the one place within the Shire where heavy snowfalls were common.[2] In the spring of T.A. 3018, Samwise Gamgee was at The Green Dragon Inn and reported hearing about Tree-men or giants that had been seen away beyond the North Moors.[3]
