Clearing Bamboo

brettland_2009April 30, 2009

How is bamboo, such as Sasa Kurilensis, uprooted and cleared? Any ideas as to how to clear it without it coming back?

Hack it down low and keep mowing the site to starve it out. It will keep trying to send up new shoots each year until it exhausts itself (no sunlight = no food = no energy).

There are a lot of other methods, this is just he one I can remember reading about.

that is one way for sure. The other is to get a rototiller and pull all the rhizomes out. I did this one several years ago.

Just wondering if you still had any of the Bamboo you were trying to get rid of. I have golden Groove and i live in Ny myself, over by Buffalo, Ny. Just thought I'd ask, thanks
