Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Item SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a 100m x 100m concrete and stainless steel wall. The stainless steel is to be constructed to fit as a modular and reinforcement system for the concrete. This is so that when the concrete gets broken down by SCP-XXXX it can easily be replaced. The stainless steel is the only supporting structure usable for containment as it does not dissolve in the gas or liquid emitted from SCP-XXXX. The concrete must be 30m in height and must be place 10m into the ground.

All staff are required to wear protective suits and are not to be exposed to SCP-XXXX for more than 10 minutes. If it is raining no staff are to enter the containment area and must wait a minimum of 180 hours before accessing SCP-XXXX’s containment area once more.
If any instance of SCP-XXXX-1 drops it is to be collected and sent to the lab outside of the wall for use as fuel in the neutralising sprays. Once a week (or immediately after rainfall dries) the bottom of SCP-XXXX is to be sprayed with SCP-XXXX-1 fluid as to prevent SCP-XXXX’s fluid becoming too potent. Any and all instances of SCP-XXXX-2 are to be immediately disposed of in the on-site incinerator. This is to prevent any growth of any more instances of SCP-XXXX.

Due to the amount of civilian bodies it has been decided that the forest area surrounding the site be knocked down and replaced with housing estates holding staff personnel.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an abnormally large lemon and lime tree with a similar size to an average adult oak tree. The tree was first discovered in a forest in ████, Australia after numerous reports of melting bodies of several kinds of organisms. The regional police force contacted the foundation after losing their forensic team to SCP-XXXX.

MTF Beta-7 ("Maz Hatters") was dispatched to confirm for any anomalous signs. Upon coming into the area a total of 37 bodies along with several wildlife were found with a large majority supposedly being the regional forensic team however the bodies were indistinguishable with all bodies turned into an almost liquefied state. Bodies further away from SCP-XXXX are missing the upper half of their body. These bodies had not been melted necessarily but have rather been crushed. The bodies are close to one another and are assumed to be campers. All had partially eaten lemons taken from SCP-XXXX. These lemons are further forth referred to as SCP-XXXX-2. All corpses found have shown no signs of any decomposition.

The protective suits are built to protect subjects from an unknown substance that will melt anything in contact. The substance is released as a gas that is emitted from the base of the tree through small holes 2mm maximum of size. When it the area becomes humid the gas condensates, the suits are unable to handle it in liquid state and entrance into the containment area during this status is ill-advised.
