What if they set up fences to harvest them and burn them in a powerplant? They would produce ash which could be used to fertilize other plants.

Tumbleweed is just the Texan version of weed, they just forgot to water it after it grew into a massive bush of weed

I'm Brazilian so don't blame me by my ignorance, but couldn't you just burn tons of tumbleweed and produce energy by it?

I suspect that just isn't an economical solution, capturing them, and transporting them somewhere, without them burning on the way there would be pretty expensive, and the energy you got out of it may even be less than the energy it took to capture them (that's just speculation though, I'm no expert). Not to mention you'd still never be *rid* of the tumbleweeds, you'd only slightly reduce their numbers at best.
