The dust bowl of the 1930s was ended by a massive federal government tree planting program called 'The Shelterbelt Project.' It worked incredibly well, the dustbowl has never returned, maybe a similar program needs to happen in the west to end that drought.

"Established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt under executive order on July 21, 1934, the Shelterbelt Project provided for a tree barrier one hundred miles wide extending twelve hundred miles north to south from the Canadian border through the Texas panhandle. It was designed to reduce wind velocity, which had occasioned severe soil erosion across the Midwest and dust storms to the eastern seaboard."
