SCP-XXXX-1 upon discovery (photograph obtained from Reality 117)

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX-1 is located in a parallel reality and is contained by the Foundation in place there. It is currently kept in a secure locker on Site-42 of that reality. Access to it is restricted to personnel with clearance level 4 or higher.

The Foundation in the current reality must recover and destroy SCP-XXXX-1. Expeditions into Reality 117 are to be carried out by agents with clearance level 2.

Description: SCP-XXXX-1 is a structure similar in overall shape and size to a downy oak tree (Quercus pubescens) located in an alternate reality referred to as Reality 117. SCP-XXXX-1 has no apparent root system, and the bottom of it is flat. Despite this, studies have shown it is alive and has a working metabolism, although it does not grow leaves.

SCP-XXXX-1's biochemistry is based on silicon rather than carbon, and the sap has a high concentration in cobalt compounds responsible for its blue color. These properties have never been observed in non-anomalous life forms on Earth, in both Reality 117 and this one, which points to an extraterrestrial origin of SCP-XXXX-1 despite its similarities to earth-native trees. The sap is generated in an anomalous manner, appearing at the bottom of the tree and vanishing when it reaches the extremity of the branches. In this way, the amount of matter in the structure remains constant.

The surface of SCP-XXXX-1 is covered in protuberant dots organized in a complex pattern. It is believed that this may be a form of language, and deciphering attempts are underway.

Discovery: SCP-XXXX-1 came to the attention of Reality 117's Foundation in 20██, when it was reported that a blue tree had been present for an unknown amount of time in a field near Graz, Austria. It was removed and contained, then a replica was installed and presented to the public as a work by a local artist. SCP-XXXX-1 later came to the attention of this reality's Foundation when [REDACTED].

Reality 117 has been urged to destroy SCP-XXXX-1 and as of now, has not complied. Rogue Foundation personnel in Reality 117 have attempted to do so, to no avail. In response, the O5 Council from Reality 117 ruled that suppressing knowledge about [REDACTED] would eliminate any empathy for [REDACTED] and therefore any motivation for destroying SCP-XXXX-1 in personnel. They claim that not stopping [REDACTED] will allow for a better understanding of it, in case it were to occur in their reality. This is viewed as futile, as [REDACTED] could be avoided as a whole if no alternate Foundations had this behavior.
