Item #: SCP-3172

Object Class: Safe Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: As of 3/12/██, a high-security perimeter fence has been set up in all directions of SCP-3172's origin point, expanding out 1200 feet, with high bushes and trees to avoid the civilian eye due to SCP-3172's immobility, and personal opinion. The entire area is under watch by 10+ armed security personnel, and the area has been marked as a private garden for an unknown billionaire. All airspace above SCP-3172's containment area is a no-fly zone, any unauthorized vehicles flying above the containment area will be shot down.

All testing on SCP-3172 is to be observed and approved by the Project Director, Doctor Martinez. SCP-3172 may only have access to a single nerve sample at a time, to prevent any possible security breaches. In the event of a containment breach, all civilians in an area of five(5) miles of the containment area must be evacuated. Non-compliant civilians will be terminated after multiple warnings. Their death will be classified as a homicide. If at any point does any security personnel on site or the Project Director feel as SCP-3172 is planning an escape attempt, or is deemed unsafe, SCP-3172 will be burnt, and SCP-3172 must undergo medical treatment.

Description: SCP-3172 appears to be a large, organic, living mass of tree bark, weighing about 408 kg(900 lbs) with a consistency similar to that of a Redwood tree. Subject’s size and shape constantly change, though most of the time its form is the size of a large human head, with no organs, leaves, or nervous system found. A composition of SCP-3172's tree bark is a substance unknown to modern science.

Upon a human brain tissue making contact or interfering with SCP-3172's tree bark, SCP-3172 would seem to let off a slow smooth humming noise, which slowly intensifies as more contact is made between the tissue and SCP-3172's 'core'. Thirteen(13) hours after contact is made between the tissue and SCP-3172, many duplicates of the tissue will begin to be made, and the soft humming will begin to slowly stop. Sixteen(16) hours after contact is made between the tissue and SCP-3172, SCP-3172 will appear to go dormant, or quiet. SCP-3172 may stay in this stage for many hours, days, or the longest time recorded was Eleven(11) weeks. After the dormant stage is complete, SCP-3172 will proceed to make a 'copy' of the tissue and seem to create an entirely new brain, which may be deformed. SCP-3172 will then attempt to shake off some of its bark, and attempt to recreate the living being from its own material. These instances are usually docile unless provoked, or the subject was thinking of 'devilish thoughts' at the time of the sample taking.

It is currently unknown on how SCP-3172 deciphers between human brain tissues, and other tissues, from other species, or other organs. SCP-3172 is currently being studied and tested on. To extract the human brain tissues, may either be through an extensive surgery performed by the foundation to test on SCP-3172, or SCP-3172 obtains brain cells of those around it in an unknown matter. The following are tests conducted by the Project Director, Doctor Martinez.

Experimentation Log #0023
Subject: Class-D 3144

Extraction type: Surgery

Notes: Class-D 3144's brain tissue was taken for testing on 7/12/██. SCP-3172 gradually accepts the tissue, and begins the long process of duplicating the tissues, and creating an instance. On 7/15/██, an instance was successfully created at ██:██:17 PM. The instance was later terminated for attempted murder on Security Agent William J ██████.

Experimentation Log #0024
Subject: Class-D 7391

Extraction type: SCP-3172

Notes: Class-D 3144's brain tissue was taken by SCP-3172 for pleasure on 9/07/██. SCP-3172 begins the long process of duplicating the tissues and creating an instance. On 9/12/██, an instance was successfully created at ██:██:54 AM. The instance hasn't been disturbed, as the instance seems to care for the trees around SCP-3172.

Experimentation Log #0025
Subject: Class-D 5392

Extraction type: SCP-3172

Notes: Class-D 5392's brain tissue was taken by SCP-3172 for reproductive purposes on 1/27/██. SCP-3172 begins the long process of duplicating the tissues and creating an instance. On 2/1/██, an instance was successfully created at ██:██:17 PM. The instance was terminated that same day for attempted breach and murder of the Project Director, Doctor Martinez.

Experimentation Log #0026
Subject: Doctor Ming

Extraction type: Surgery

Notes: Doctor Ming was diagnosed with brain cancer a year ago, he wanted to see if it can clone a cure for him. On 2/11/██, a successful instance was created, and refused to make contact with any form of living organisms. The instance was later terminated for attempting containment breach, destruction of SCP-3127, and murder of multiple Security Agents. Doctor Ming was also interrogated and terminated for attempted murder, and espionage.
