Have you ever thought of using bamboo for flooring? Bamboo flooring is growing in availability and popularity in the U.S. as an alternative building resource. One of its’ primary attractiveness has been its perceived environmental benefits. Bamboo can be grown on managed forest lands where it can be culled and harvested by hand, minimizing the impact on the local environment. It can also require no pesticides, fertilizers or irrigation as some species of bamboo can grow well on poor and unstable sites (like a steep slopes and hill lands). Another benefit of bamboo is that it has potential for rapid growth and has been observed to growing over 3 feet in a single day. Much faster regeneration than trees.
