Maple Supplements

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Each instance of SCP-XXXX is to remain where it was first discovered. In situations where there is insufficient rainfall to sustain the anomalies, the ground in which they are situated is to be watered until the health of the instances is acceptable.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a tree which appears identical to the Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum). However, genetic testing of the anomalies reveals that they contain small amounts of human cerebral and nerve tissues interspersed within all sections of the tree, with the exception of the bark. The tissues display no signs of ageing or decay, however testing has shown that they are tissues from humans of varying ages. It is unknown how the human tissues survive within the entities, as they only consume the water and nutrients that would be expected of a non-anomalous Acer saccharum.

Addendum XXXX-1: Discovery
SCP-XXXX was first discovered when the Foundation investigated reports of large numbers terminally ill and elderly residents of ██████, Canada disappearing with no apparent reason. During the investigation, an advertising brochure, which is believed to relate to the anomaly, was discovered. A transcription of the contents are displayed below:

Topiary Tom’s Treehouse: 48 ██████ Street, ██████, ██████ Province, Canada.

The address displayed on the brochure was tracked to an abandoned, derelict house within the forest of SCP-XXXX-1 instances. Exploration of the household revealed nothing anomalous or beneficial to the investigation. The identity and whereabouts of PoI-8743 (“Topiary Tom”) remain unknown.

It is important to note that during the initial exploration, one specific SCP-XXXX instance was recorded dropping a small number of leaves when a member of Foundation personnel unintentionally leant on it.
