More About Bamboo…
Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world. In a single day, a bamboo plant can grow an average of up to 23.6 inches, and certain species have been measured to grow as much as 47.6 inches in one 24-hour period. However, bamboo is not a type of wood, but a type of grass. It grows most abundantly in the East and Southeast Asian regions of the world, but it can also be found in Northern Australia, India, sub-Saharan Africa and the tropical regions of the Americas.
Aside from being used as building material for many centuries bamboo has also had major cultural significance in countries like China, where bamboo is a symbol of longevity. Japan’s Shinto religion makes use of bamboo as a sacred object. Bamboo forests often surround Shinto shrines and are believed to serve as barriers against evil spirits. Buddhist temples often have bamboo groves, as they create a peaceful and meditative setting.
Bamboo Growth and Harvesting
Bamboo has become a popular eco-friendly alternative to using hardwood as building material. Because of its rapid growth and short life-cycle, bamboo is one of the most renewable natural resources in the world, and it can be harvested on a regular basis without causing significant damage to its surrounding ecosystem.
Unlike hardwoods, bamboo plants achieve their full height and girth in just one growing season, which lasts between three and four months.
Uses of Bamboo
Bamboo has a wide variety of uses. From construction to cooking, it has been a part of human culture and consumption for centuries. Another very common use for bamboo today is as a decorative tool. Small bamboo plants are becoming very popular in western interior design, and Asian cultures have been using it to decorate rooms and altars for centuries.
