Item #: SCP-3E10

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Item SCP-3E10 is to be contained within a 50m x 50m concrete and stainless steel wall. SCP-3E10 should never be in closed space as to prevent structural collapse over time. The walls are far apart from the tree so the concrete doesn't get broken down faster by the high concentrations closer to the tree. The stainless steel framework 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-3E10, it can easily be replaced. The stainless steel is the best supporting framework structure usable for containment as it does not dissolve in the gas or liquid emitted from SCP-3E10. The concrete should be a minimum of 4m in height and must be placed atleast 3m into the ground to prevent gas from climbing up or finding a way under.
As of yet, trimming is impossible as no tool is able to reach the higher parts of the tree without the equipment being broken down and will become too weak for any use. Along with this, a large amount of liquid is released when cut.

All staff are required to wear protective suits and are not to be exposed to SCP-3E10 for more than 10 minutes. If there is a high humidity no staff are to enter the containment area and must wait a minimum of 180 hours before accessing SCP-3E10’s containment area once more.
Once a week (or immediately after rainfall dries) the base of SCP-3E10 is to be sprayed with SCP-3E10-1 fluid as to prevent SCP-3E10’s substance from releasing from the base of the tree by masking it.
If any instance of SCP-3E10-1 drops or is on the floor (SCP-3E10-1 no longer drops from the tree, see Addendum 3E10-1) SCP-3E10-1 instances are to be collected and sent to the lab for use as fuel in creation of N-Sprays1. Any and all instances of SCP-3E10-2 are to be immediately disposed of in the on-site incinerator. This is to prevent any growth of any more instances of SCP-3E10.

The protective suits are built to protect subjects from an unknown substance that will melt anything in contact. The substance is released as a heavy gas that is emitted from the base of the tree through small holes 2mm maximum of size. The suits are unable to handle the substance released by SCP-3E10 in liquid state.

Provisional Site-208 houses SCP-3E10 and is to be disguised as a Bio-Chemical Plant. Any civilians showing curiosity are to be given cover story 208-1.

Description: SCP-3E10 is an abnormally large lemon and lime tree. The approximate height reaches up 41m and it's longest branch reaches 34m. It releases a gas primarily from the base of the tree. The gas released

The substance emitted by the tree has reached an esitmate of 10m to 12m past the containment area prior to containment and in a breach. The substance has not been observed to go further past it's range from SCP-3E10 as if a wall is blocking it from reaching any further. Observed has been a perfect circle.

As stated, SCP-3E10 produce both limes and lemons.
Limes produced by SCP-3E10 are to be listed as SCP-3E10-1. All instances of SCP-3E10 do not pose any threat to any biological being. SCP-3E10-1 instances are essential in neutralizing masking the base of the tree.

SCP-3E10-2 is a lemon based product created by SCP-3E10. SCP-3E10-2 comes in multiple forms SCP-3E10-2A, SCP-3E10-2B and SCP-3E10-2C. SCP-3E10-2A takes a normal form of a abnormally sized lemon averaging 12.45cm in diameter.
SCP-3E10-2B has a similar form to SCP-3E10-2A but has no skin. Due the lack of skin it has a tendency to leak SCP-3E10-2 liquid.
SCP-3E10-2C has the form of a glass cup2 filled with SCP-3E10-2 fluid. The amount of fluid ranges between 200ml and 650ml. When SCP-3E10-2C's fluid is drained, the glass will melt into the same liquid.
All instances of SCP-3E10-2 share the same dangerous properties upon biological contact. Upon consumption the subject will experience pains in the upper torso. The subject's head then proceeds to implode. After implosion, it will melt.
Upon autopsy, it is discovered that the skeletal structure of the rest of the body is crushed, the bones are a fine dust closest to the head and at the feet shows major fractures.

Instances of SCP-3E10-2C had initially not been seen prior to containment. 136 days after containment, SCP-3E10 begun to grow these new instances of SCP-3E10-2. It is assumed that SCP-3E10 adapts to its surroundings and has created multiple types of instances of SCP-3E10-2 as a kind of lure.

The tree was first discovered in a forest in ████, Australia after numerous reports of melting bodies of several kinds of organisms. Agent ███ contacted the foundation after the regional forensic team to SCP-3E10.
MTF Beta-7 ("Maz Hatters") was dispatched to confirm for any anomalous signs. Upon coming into the area based on reports, 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-3E10 are not as liquefied and can be identified as Deputy █████ and Lt. ████. All corpses found appeared to show no signs of any natural decomposition.

Addendum 3E10-1: SCP-3E10 has displayed new behavior. In which it drops instances of SCP-3E10-2 on top of the 3 Class-D's sent into the containment area for a routine spray and collection. This left 1 dead and the other 2 in critical condition. A side effect with this is that instances of SCP-3E10-1 don't drop to the ground at all and now require a ladder, this task is increasingly difficult with the uneven ground that in some cases is soft and the ladder will just sink. Prior to the Class-D's entering the containment area there was no new activity.

A note from Senior Researcher Dr. █████:
Due to the nature of SCP-3E10 we can't tell what the next move is going to be. The sheer size of it terrifies me and worse of all it might even stop producing instances of SCP-3E10-1 all together which could make containment almost impossible. We are reclassifying this SCP as euclid. We may raise it up to keter if the worst happens.
