After the destruction of the [[Two Lamps]] the Valar withdrew to [[Aman]] and created [[Valinor]].  Upon the green mound of [[Ezellohar]] Yavanna sat and sang while the other Valar sat and listened.  Her song, with the aid of the tears of [[Nienna]] brought forth the [[Two Trees]], her greatest creation, which gave light to the land.  However, Yavanna did not forsake the [[Outer Lands]]; at times she would come there and heal the hurts of Morgoth and urged the other Valar to wage war on him before the [[Awakening of the Elves]].<ref name="Days"/>

After [[Ilúvatar|Eru]] allowed Aulë's creations, the [[Dwarves]], to survive, Yavanna feared that they would cut down all the trees in [[Middle-earth]]. [[Aulë]], in reply, told her that even [[Elves]] and [[Men]], the true [[Children of Ilúvatar]] would have need of her trees as well.  Yavanna lamented to [[Manwë]], questioning whether anything she had made would be free from the dominion of others.  Manwë brought her concerns before [[Ilúvatar]] in prayer, and Eru did indeed have pity upon Yavanna: He answered her plea by creating the [[Ents]] to protect the trees.<ref name=aule>{{S|Aule}}</ref>
