Bamboo offers many important resources to animals, including food (seeds, shoots, leaves, insects, etc.), and cover from enemies. There are two main properties that the bamboo provides that attract birds. Firstly, the shoots and leaves provide birds with good nesting material, while the plants themselves are an excellent source of cover, protecting the birds from predators and the weather elements. When you plant bamboo you enhance your local biodiversity.
As you may be aware the well-being of humans is dependent on the sustainability of their environment…
Did you know that Bamboo’s ability to restore degraded land is a particularly important ecosystem service for forests? Its long underground root systems mean that bamboos can bind soil, prevent water run-off and survive even when the biomass above ground is destroyed by fire.
