Friday the 2nd August 2019 we just finalized a massive reforestation on a old and steep pasture field with giant bamboo (Dendrocalamus asper). This is a extremely steep hill part of the farm. The giant bamboo will also help fight erosion. Additionally it has been planted so that it will create a tunnel pathway of about 150 meters. Most likely well visible in 2022 (3 years in future).
We have already planted vetiver grass in this part so the microorganisms are activated. This should help boost the bamboo growth speed even more.
Total 73 giant bamboo plants have been transplanted after 3 days of work. Planted in 6x6x6 meters triangular. The plants are already huge as you can see in some photos. It was time to transplant them. This will attract many birds they love to have their nests within the bamboo. So do some endemic snakes too. There is space for all. Increasing biodiversity with bamboo. Next step plant more endemic flowers in that area. This is food for the birds and endemic stingless bees
