balderdash

Here is my best explanation:

'nonsense' is the definition.

(balderdash is a kind of nonsense)

'tree finally planted during party?' is the subsidiary indication.

I cannot really understand how this works, but

'tree' could be 'alder' (alder is a kind of tree) and 'alder' is present in the answer.

This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).
