SCP-XXXX-2 near the origin point. The area is a desert due to the absence of aerobic life forms.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-2 is located in an alternate dimension known as Reality 126, where it has caused an XK-Class "End of the World" scenario1. The Foundation established in our dimension provided help to humanity in Reality 126 until recently, when it was decided that the situation was irreversible, and that any help would be a waste of assets. Researchers from our dimension are still allowed to access Reality 126, but for research purposes only.

Description: SCP-XXXX-2 is a network of fast-growing plant stems that thrive on Earth in a plane of reality known as Reality 126. The stems that collectively form SCP-XXXX-2 grow directly on the ground, are often hundreds of kilometers in length and dozens of meters in diameter, and can grow on the bottom of oceans to reach new land. Their biochemistry is based on silicon, and the sap they transport is blue due to cobalt compounds. First level stems all join into a single origin point near Graz, Austria. On top of the mass of converging stems is what appears to be a blue tree stump.

It has been shown that the sap is formed at the extremities of the stems from collected water and minerals, then circulates back to the stump, where it vanishes. Most of the sap is consumed by SCP-XXXX-2 itself and therefore travels extremely slowly inside the stems, but as it moves closer to the origin and the stems merge, providing more pressure, it accelerates to reach a perceivable speed. Near the stump, the speed of the sap is the same as that of SCP-XXXX-1, it is therefore believed that SCP-XXXX-2 acts as the root system of SCP-XXXX-1.

SCP-XXXX-2 consumes a large quantity of atmospheric gasses, mainly nitrogen and oxygen. SCP-XXXX-1 and -2, both leafless, are not thought to photosynthesize and therefore cannot provide oxygen, but they do reject carbon dioxide in larger quantities than native flora can process. The direct consequence is the death of all aerobic life forms near the roots, and intense global warming.

When SCP-XXXX-2 came to the attention of Reality 126's Foundation, it was already too massive to be exterminated. It later came to the attention of Reality 117's Foundation when the connection with SCP-XXXX-1 was discovered. It then came to the attention of this reality's Foundation when [REDACTED].

As of [REDACTED], SCP-XXXX-2 has colonized an estimated three quarters of the continental surface of Reality 126's Earth, and killed an estimated 45% of all its biosphere. It is thought that neutralizing SCP-XXXX-2 can be accomplished by destroying SCP-XXXX-1 and would interrupt the ongoing XK-Class scenario.2 However, the Foundation in the dimension that contains SCP-XXXX-1, known as Reality 117, refuses to comply.

Notes on Reality 126: Humanity in this reality lives in precarious conditions, trying to end the XK-Class scenario by bombing, cutting and otherwise destroying SCP-XXXX-2. This has little effect however, as SCP-XXXX-2 grows faster than it can be destroyed. Although early plans of using SCP items to remove SCP-XXXX-2 were considered, the roots grew over the facilities containing these anomalies before action could be taken. The human population is estimated to about half a billion individuals, and decreases every day as temperatures rise and the atmosphere becomes more toxic. Below is a declassified message sent by Reality 126's O5-1.

We are defeated. Not too long from now, the whole of this Earth will be a desert, ruled solely by this demon plant. Only few animals are not drowning in air already, or being heated to death while we wait for our turn. But you already know all of this.

There is no escape in this reality. Pocket dimensions? All lost to the roots. Spacecrafts? Same. Underground nuclear shelters? Not sure how long they would stay cool enough to live in. Or, should I say, survive in. That is clearly not life.

I still have trouble believing that all of this is just a despicable experiment. Reality 117 keep that tree around just to see what will happen to us, not realizing that a certain death awaits them if all dimensions start behaving like this.

I know you can't help us. Our dimensions are nearly identical, and every single one of us has an alter ego in your world. Taking in refugees would probably impact your society too much for it to be worth the time. It is too late for us now, but others can still be saved. No one deserves to endure what occurred here.

And hopefully, you guys will do better than we did. [NAME REDACTED], it was a pleasure to work with you.

Update: On [REDACTED], the day when the last life forms on Reality 126's Earth are estimated to have become extinct, SCP-XXXX-1 bloomed. The flowers were teal blue, had five petals, and bore no reproductive organs. They persisted for 35 hours, then fell off of the object. The tree eventually stopped pumping blue sap, died, and took a black coloration. Later, the O5 Council of our reality received a message from Reality 215.

Greetings, O5-1.

Our world finally died. As for us, Reality 215 accepted to shelter the O5 Council, and only the O5 Council. But back in Reality 126, Humanity is nothing more than a memory that is good to some and bad to others.

It is unpleasantly ironic that we escaped thanks to a privilege, from a situation that was mainly due to a privileged reality. It is rare enough that we find exactly where the tree is, and the one time we do, it has to be in a dimension that wants to play God.

But they will eventually get what they deserve. Before leaving our reality for good, we glanced at the sky a last time, and the █████ is no longer there. It left our world. One day, it will come after them.

And that day, they will regret not remembering.
