Cutting bamboo with a bush hog?

herwitsendMarch 18, 2008

Does it split the poles? Can I cut my bamboo forest with a brush cutter and still use the bamboo?

Probaby will split the poles. I have found that a reciprocating(sawzall) saw works really well for harvesting culms, and cleaning up overgrown groves.

Hey, the city of Columbia cut down my bamboo grove with a bush hog. It definitely split.
