Yavanna Kementári is a Vala, her first name means "Giver of fruits" and her surname Kementári means "Queen of the Earth". She's also called Palúrien. She is the wife of Aulë and is responsible for the growth of all the fruits and growing things of the World.

After Eru allowed Aulë's creations, the Dwarves, to survive, Yavanna feared that they would cut down all the trees in Middle-earth. Eru answered her plea by creating Ents to protect the trees.
