Bamboo Floors has been involved in the development of bamboo for ten years.
Bamboo Floors is more than just about selling flooring, we believe in the nobility of the fibre given its true sustainability, performance characteristics’ and beauty.
Bamboo is about the sustainability of a fibre that can reproduce its supply unassisted. It is not about clear felling but a tradition of taking only the poles that have matured, and only at non invasive periods of the forests’ life.
Poles shoot during spring, rapidly growing to 15m in three months, the local farmers then mark each pole so its age is known and the appropriate time of harvest is assured
It is calculated that a bamboo forest produces five times the bio mass of a pine plantation. Pine plantations are usually an introduced species that have questionable practices of burnt earth felling and an invasive mono crop nature to them, when not growing indigenously.
Bamboo forests or oceans are beautiful places, naturally growing only where bamboo would naturally grow, there are many different species around the world . Each different species growing in differing climates, each species on mass, to remain in a truly reproductive state, need to grow in these specific locations. This insures native forests prevail, including native habitants not to mention the local people for which a sustainable income is assured.
Bamboo absorbs carbon from the atmosphere like no other forest.
Changes to the climate may mean that as the world gets warmer and wetter within the band of climate that already supports bamboo, it is likely that the conditions suitable for yielding bamboo forests will increase.
Bamboo whilst absorbing the over supply of carbon in the atmosphere created by us, will provide a wealth of bamboo fibre. The availability of bamboo fibre will assist protecting traditional forests until the new conventions of Timber Management have time to mature creating proper management of our severely ravaged timber stocks.
