The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, The Realms in Exile: The Southern Line: Ruling Stewards

When Belecthor II, the twenty-first Steward, died, the White Tree died also in Minas Tirith; but it was left standing 'until the King returns', for no seedling could be found.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion: The Stewards

2872. Belecthor II, twenty-first Steward of Gondor, dies.(38) The White Tree dies in the court of Minas Tirith. No seedling can be found. The dead tree is left standing in the court under the White Tower.

The Peoples of Middle-Earth, HoME Vol 12, Part 1, Ch 8, The Tale of Years of the Third Age

The date of the death of the Steward Belecthor II in all three texts of The Heirs of Elendil is 2872. The date 2852 in the later typescripts of the Tale of Years and in Appendix B [of The Return of the King] is evidently a casual error.

[Note: the year is canon, but the day is set arbitrarily to sequence the timeline correctly.]
