What we need is a modern day Johnny Appleseed only maybe we'll call him Johnny Cactus Seed. He can roam the desert planting cactus and other drought tolerant plants. Maybe he'll even win a Nobel Prize for his efforts!

Kudzu - A Very Wicked Plant
It may be an invasive weed in the southeast states, but here in the desert it would probably be easy to keep under control. Of course, if it somehow reached local springs it might be a problem, but then again the local donkeys need something to eat!

I feel that both of you guys are missing the point. Desert reclamation is not just about planting one species or another. It's about realizing and using factors, Like how geology and the interaction of species affect the land in ways very few people understand. Even our professional environmentalists in charge.
