It doesn't make sense, but then again, it's main facet is it being illogical, so maybe shooting itself in the foot is 'in character'...
well as logical as the very mages of the Tree of Genesis is trying to revive it's biggest rival the Tree of Exodus.

IKR?but anyway if I recall it wasn't really the presence of the Fruits (of Exodus)nor the mages (genesis) themselves which caused them to turn to metal, but rather the Tree of Genesis. Sort of a preventive mechanism it put in place to prevent any Human (or other living thing?) from attempting to revive the Tree of Exodus before it hibernated. Of course indirectly the mages (genesis) are still responsible knowing that this will happen but I guess they're in kinda of a tough spot, with human extinction possibly on the line.

On the morality of killing though. I think it would be strange to tack Human morals and values to an entity like the Tree of Genesis ( & the Tree of Exodus for that matter) because first of all they're not human nor part of our community/civilization, apparently Logic is the main driving force of the tree of Genesis. Humans are like Ants to it, or maybe more like Bacteria.

Also I think,(most probably) Samon used preserving magic on the skeleton. since he needs it to be similar, equal to the past skeleton of hakase for the sympathetic magic to work.
