About Japanese Bamboo
Typically it takes at least 20-30 years for a tree to reach maturity and be felled for its timber. Japanese bamboo, on the other hand, takes only 1 year to mature. After enduring 3-5 years of cold winters and hot summers, it will be strong enough to be used for products. Compared to lumber, the maturation period is far shorter. Unlike harvested trees, Japanese bamboo sends out new shoots as long as the root is intact and therefore harvesting it does not contribute to deforestation. Renewable resources should be used effectively to maintain a greener, healthier global community.
