Scout finds sticks of gum in the knot hole of a tree on the Radley Place in Chapter Four: "Two live oaks stood at the edge of the Radley lot...Some tinfoil was sticking in a knot-hole just above my eve level, winking at me in the afternoon sun. I stood on tiptoe, hastily looked around once more, reached into the hole, and withdrew two pieces of chewing gum minus the outer wrappers."

Boo has done this, of course, as a gesture of kindness and to get the children to come more frequently to the property.
