Bamboo is not a wood, it is a grass. Unlike a tree which can take decades to grow to maturity, bamboo is ready to harvest within 4 to 5 years. If bamboo shoots are not harvested when mature, they will fall over and disable future growth. The fast growth allows for controlled harvesting of a resource that would otherwise go to waste. This sharply contrasts the devastation that conventional logging currently has on our forests.
- Bamboo flooring is not only ecologically sound, but remarkably beautiful and elegant. Its grains provide an exotic and unique pattern that can compliment any decor in your room.
- Bamboo flooring is also extremely durable. It is up to 34% harder than red oak and up to 15% harder than maple.
- Structurally it is 50% more stable than red oak. Bamboo is also naturally more withstanding to moisture than wood. It does not shrink or swell as much as wood and resists dings and dents better than wood flooring.
Because bamboo is a grass, no natural hardwood trees are cut down in producing bamboo flooring. Because of bamboo's extensive root system that continually grows underground, it replenishes itself naturally, as grass does. New growth, which springs out of the ground and can mature up to 24" in 24 hours, is thinned out and canned to be used for products such as chopsticks, doors, plywood sheeting, flooring, furniture, scaffolding, window blinds, and countless other uses. Unlike trees, which die when harvested, bamboo regenerates itself, making it a renewable resource.
