Well, either Gandalph has carried out his ultimatum or it has had zero effect and the fool who insists on raping the land of her herbs has struck again. So, I have pledged my support to his cause and removed the last few lestagii from the land, given there were only a handful left this was not a major undertaking.
I recommend that animist simply don't bother to replant lestagii in the short-term as I predict it would have little or no positive effect. It would simply ensure that the selfish culprit felt their actions had no bearing on the land. As the rest of us know, this is simply not the case, nor acceptable.
Some of the elders amongst you may feel my stance on this is somewhat hypocritical. However I can assure there is a significant difference between picking a herb to five and picking it completely from the land, the later is something I generally frown upon.
I'm sure in a few weeks the animists' guild would appreciate a donation of essence from the herb picking guild in the land and help replanting all the lestagii locations to a sensible level. But that is a few weeks away. In the meantime, it is important that the scoundrel see that their actions carry with them consequences.
