    Have a customer that wants about 100 bamboo shoots removed from his property. He's cheap, so I'm sure he doesn't want to pay to ensure they don't come back. Like digging up the roots and such. This bamboo is 30 to 40 feet high and I'm sure it's worth something. I've called a few landscape supply places and none of them are interested. A quick web search has led to a few places in the area that deal with bamboo. Haven't called them, yet. Do you guys have any other suggestions? Besides eBay?

    call hardwood flooring guys and a local saw mill, if there is one there. Bamboo flooring is becoming VERY popular.

    Wow! Could probably haul in some sharks with those babies. :D

    We don't get much for bamboo up in the north country but I do have one prop that has some sort of man eating bamboo tree. The thing grows like crazy and is a pain in the butt to cut and trim around, can't believe it evens grows up here.
