Stone temple priests confirmed today that recent construction has uncovered a second stone tree. The West Branch informed reporters today that the miners uncovered leaves during last Friday’s work to enlarge the main sanctuary. Construction work on that corner of the sanctuary has stopped and the stone priests are working to removed the stone and gravel by hand so as not to damage the tree.

The tree has been confirmed as a fig tree. Although the Trunk has not yet spoken on the subject, the Branches seemed quite clear that this indicated that all fruit bearing trees should be considered holy, and not just the banana trees. “It is as we have always said, it is the potential to bear fruit, not the particular fruit itself, that makes holiness .”

No comment yet from the banana cult’s High Peel.

We are assured that the the temple will remain open during construction and services will continue to be held at 9am and 4pm daily. Work to uncover the second Tree will commence between services.
