Bamboo is one of the world’s most prolific and fastest-growing plants and is able to reach maturity in about four years, compared to the typical 25 to 70 years for commercial tree species.
  1. 1

    Bamboo is a renewable resource for agro-forestry production. It is used to produce flooring, wall paneling, pulp for paper, fencing, briquettes for fuel, raw material for housing, clothing and more.

  2. 2

    Bamboo is harvested and replenished with no impact to the environment. It can be selectively harvested annually and is capable of complete regeneration without the need to replant. Because of its short growth cycle (it grows one third faster than the fastest growing tree), it can be harvested in 3 – 5 years versus 10 – 100 years for most tree woods.

  3. 3

    Without rays or knots, its natural appearance is smooth and coherent.

  4. 4

    With an amazing tensile strength that rivals steel (it can withstand up to 52,000 pounds of pressure), bamboo is a viable replacement for wood and makes for one of the strongest building materials.
