The name White Tree refers to more than one character, item or concept. For a list of other meanings, see White Tree (disambiguation).

Galathilion, the White Tree made by Yavanna for the Elves of the city of Tirion and a descendant of Telperion although it gave no light.

It grew in a high open courtyard beneath the Mindon Eldaliéva.

From it came Celeborn, the White Tree of Tol Eressëa; through which it became the ancestor of Nimloth of Númenor and the White Tree of Gondor.
