LD,
I've been thinking about the "problem" of Bamboo as mistakenly being branded UN -"American".

Hollywood is the culprit! Bamboo is associated with Banana Republics and/or Asian tropical jungles.  :( Merikans have seen too many movies of the "japs" o the "gooks" hiding in the bamboo OR preparing bamboo SPIKE booby traps for unwary Merikans. Bamboo just ain't Anglo-Saxon as far as our propaganda pushers are concerned!

Sure, it's INSANE that Merikans just LOVE BANANAS and don't seem to make the same connection (United Fruit Fascists and Chiquita Bananas had great PR for over a century!) THERE but that just proves how "successfully" we-the-people have been brainwashed and DUMBED DOWN.

By the way, there is a guy in Vermont that is growing a type of bamboo that IS invasive here.   ;D  Good for him! This whole "invasive" thing is kind of stupid anyway. This is ONE PLANET! If it grows, it's because it LIKES IT THERE! Invasive, MY ARSE!

The World of Bamboo

     by Gib Cooper


Bamboo's natural range includes every continent except Europe and Antarctica.

We once had 5 million acres of an American native bamboo known as Canebrake or Arundinaria gigantea growing in our Southeastern quarter. This bamboo and its ecosystem were soon greatly diminished in area by the migration of settlers in the early 19th century.   :emthdown: The bamboo grew in good soil and was cleared for farmland. Unbelievably, a new species was described for the USA in 2006. Its name is Hill cane, or Arundinaria appalachiana.

Stone Age Asians may have relied heavily on tools they made of materials other than stone. The lack of stone tools of the quality found in Europe in much of Southeast Asia roughly corresponds to the natural distribution of bamboo in the region. It appears that Southeast Asia has been heavily forested for many millions of years. This is still one of the areas of dense bamboo forests remaining in the world. Man may have relied more on bamboo than we know. Based on this theory, bamboo was probably one of the most important materials used by early Asian people. Even today, the use of bamboo has more significance to Asian cultures than any other.

Evidence of bamboo use is found in South America. Some excavations of early dwellings have imprints of bamboo canes and split, woven material preserved in the mud or adobe used in the construction or as protective living stockades around villages.

Bamboo is an incredible grass that has long been in use by people around the globe. In our modern world it is finding a new place in the spectrum of plants, fibers and foods used to enhance the quality of our lives.  :emthup: We are not simply talking about one plant. Bamboo is a large group of giant grasses with over 1,200 species found from the tropics to temperate regions.
