Decipher Card of the White Tree Sapling
White Tree and emblem of Gondor. The White Tree was the seedling on Nimloth of Numenor. It was saved from the downfall by Isildur, who planted it in Minas Ithil. Sauron took over Minas Ithil in 3429 of the Second Age and the White Tree was burned. But Isildur regrew it in Minas Tirith. It grew next to the King's palace and lived until the end of the line. It did wither during the Great Plague of 1636 of the Third Age, but it was replanted on the citadel by King Tarandor. It was then guarded by the Guards of the Citadel. When the line of Kings ended in 2050, Stewards took over Gondor and the White Tree once again began to die. It was reborn and blossomed when Aragorn became King.
