  • A group of woody perennial evergreen plants within the grass family
  • There are over 1200 identified species worldwide divided into two groups, leptomorph (running) and pachymorph (clumping)
  • There are approximately 150 species of pachymorph (non-invasive clumping) bamboo identified today
  • Clumping bamboo has a natural growth habit of forming tight compact clumps within a rhizome system
  • Grows 3 times faster than trees that make up deciduous or conifer forests which may take 30-50 years to regenerate after harvesting
  • Removes more carbon dioxide than most trees (as much as 2 times the rate) , due to its exceptional growth, and releases oxygen at a continual rate to aid in the world’s global warming
  • It’s a superb “green” product used around the world in crafts, gardening, furniture and home construction, clothing and even food products.
  • It makes an excellent natural and controllable barrier.
  • Its strength and flexibility gives it the ability to bend within a storm and become upright again afterward.
  • Its strength as a building material has been proven to withstand earthquakes.
  • Certain species can tolerate cold temperatures in the teens, many clumping species can withstand temps to 21 degrees without dropping a leaf
