Year of the Trees 1000
From Tolkien Gateway
Notable events in this year include:
- The Valar hold council, for Yavanna and Oromë report that Melkor might rise once more in power. They discuss the forthcomingness of the Children of Ilúvatar and whether to bring light to Middle-earth.
- Over the next fifty years, Varda uses the light from Telperion to fashion new stars, and organize them (and those already wrought) into constellations. The greatest of these constellations was the Menelmacar.
- About some time before the Awakening of the Elves, Aulë secretly creates the 7 Fathers of the Dwarves and their 6 spouses. Ilúvatar adopts them and they are put to sleep.
