The White Tree of Tol Eressëa, a seedling of Galathilion, the White Tree of Tirion:
[Galathilion] was planted in the courts beneath the Mindon and there flourished, and its seedlings were many in Eldamar. Of these one was afterwards planted in Tol Eressëa, and it prospered there, and was named Celeborn; thence came in the fullness of time..., Nimloth, the White Tree of Númenor.

The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, Ch 5, Of Eldamar and the Princes of the Eldalië

And [the Firstborn] brought to Númenor many gifts.... And a seedling they brought of Celeborn, the White Tree that grew in the midst of Eressëa; and that was in its turn a seedling of Galathilion the Tree of Túna, the image of Telperion that Yavanna gave to the Eldar in the Blessed Realm....

The Silmarillion, Akallabêth
