Need Bamboo in Philadelphia Area

Deepol89January 16, 2011


I am located in philadelphia and am desperately seeking bamboo for an event I am having next weekend.

I have only been able to locate the thinner varietys, I am looking for long, thicker (1.5"-3"+) sturdy poles to build some of the props with.

If you have any or know of anybody with some they may be willing to let us cut down, please let me know.

You're fairly unlikely to find that size bamboo growing in Philly, and someone who had that size would probably not be thrilled to cut it down. Your only option on such short notice is probably a local importer of bamboo poles.
