Reforestation of deserts with recycled artificial christmas trees
Summary says it all. Dedesertification is accomplished by
replanting with artificial christmas trees, collected through
a global recycling program. For an improved nature
experience, we can hang pine shaped and scented
automotive air fresheners in the astroforests.
If the astroforest is dense
enough (like me) the improved
moisture retention through shade and gradual build up of
guano might even allow real plants to regrow.

||I thought the point of artificial trees was that you don't have to buy a new one each year, so who is recyling all these plastic trees?
||But what happens if you dump all the real Christmas trees in the desert?

The terrorists win.
||I'm not sure if this would work. What if the artificial trees absorb more infrared and end up heating the air around them? Better to have solar panels above the ground IMO.
||A pink aluminum Christmas tree like Charlie Brown was supposed to get would do the trick. Perhaps. But I don't know, would the reflectivity factor outweigh the 'cooking metal' factor?
