Bamboo Grows Fast
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the Earth! There are over 1,000 different species of bamboo, some growing 24-36 inches in a single day. Hardwood trees can take upwards of 20-50 years to reach their full height. Bamboo takes 5-7 years.
Bamboo can generate up to 35% more oxygen than the equivalent amount of trees.
Unlike trees, Bamboo roots can stay behind when harvested, and the bamboo will regrow. Bamboo is a relatively low maintenance plant. Both of these help cut down on labor costs when replenishing the fields.
Bamboo repels dust and pollen, and resists mold/mildew. It is also inhospitable to dust mites!
