During the time of its harvesting it grows a new shoot from its root system with no need for additional planting or cultivation.  Bamboo needs no chemicals to thrive.  Every part of the bamboo is used to make a variety of products and no part of it is wasted.  Bamboo is extremely versatile and it can replace wood for nearly every type of application.
