Note: This creature was originally published in Tome of Horrors, p. 310.

This many-branched and twisted tree has few leaves on it. In the middle of its trunk is a long, deep scar. Its roots are twisted and dark, blackened as if by fire.

The branches of a scythe tree look like wicked, curving scythes (this is from where the tree gets its name). The scar on the trunk is the tree’s mouth (it looks as a scar when shut).
