although, since the treasury was never full enough to buy a tree outright, a poll was never made, ex., do you want quench whittling or a tree...

so the statement is true i believe

it never crossed my mind to offer a tree, otherwise i would have. I was always led to believe that consensus was that no one wanted to waste so much gold on a tree. No one ever brought it up that they wanted to save taxes for a tree. I'll be sure to include it in future polls from now on.

If you're going to hold the funds for this, I think in every single future edict poll you should include an option saying, "No edict and save the funds for a new tree."

"No edict" or "Don't spend the money on edicts right now" is a common option for edict polls. Please stop acting like this is something that always has been unfairly missing and that you've always wanted and asked for but never got from the evil Viceroys. Wether or not Government funds are to be spent on a new tree, which only profits very few people, has in the past also often been voted on.

Ask yourself if you would be ok if I spent all the tax money on edicts right now. You'd be pissed, right ? So why do you think it would be ok towards the other people if I just spent it on the tree, even though clearly a considerable sum of people would prefer it to be used on edicts ?

7 billion was use to bring the basswood tree into existence.  If you're going to use past history as an example, then why is it such an issue to use 4 billion?

It's not, you're just desperately trying to make it into one. The question whether to use it came up, and a poll was made. That's it. No terrible abuse of powers or anything. I'm not really sure what's going on, so let's just get this straight - you're upset that Excalibus is asking the voters what they want, instead of unilaterally using the money ?
