Bamboo has a long and well-established tradition as a building material through out the world’s tropical and sub-tropical regions. It is widely used for many forms of construction, in particular for housing in rural areas. Bamboo is a renewable and versatile resource, characterized by high strength and low weight, and is easily worked using simple tools. It is widely recognized as one of the most important non-timber forest resources due to the high socio-economic benefits from bamboo based products. It is estimated that there are 1200 species growing in about 14.5 million hectares area. Most of them grow in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Bamboo is the world’s fastest growing woody plant. It grows approximately 7.5 to 40cm a day, with world record being 1.2m in 24 hours in Japan. Bamboo grows three times faster than most other species. Commercially important species of bamboo usually mature in four or five years time, after which multiple harvests are possible every second year, for upto 120 years in some species and indefinitely in others. Bamboo also excels in biomass production, giving 40 tons or more per hectare annually in managed stands. It accounts for around one-quarter of biomass produced in tropical regions and one-fifth in subtropical regions.
It has been used successfully to rehabilitate soil ravage by brick making in India, and abandoned tin-mine sites in Malaysia. It shelters top soil from the onslaught of tropical downpours, preserves many exposed areas, providing micro-climate for forest regeneration and watershed protection It is often introduced into the banks or streams or in other vulnerable areas, for rapid control of soil erosion; one bamboo plants closely matted roots can bind upto six cubic meters of soil.
