I was ready to dig bamboo the last time I was here around May and was told to wait until September to do this. I did wait and I'm trying to make arrangements to dig and transport the bamboo towards the end of Sept beginning of October.
The bamboo is amazingly tall. Digging the bamboo is not that big of a concern as they have tools on site. The issue is with transporting massively tall bamboo. I only have a GMC 1500 truck so I am loooking at renting a trailer or a bigger truck for the day. All of the bamboo is tall. If I had to could I cut half the length without killing the plants? Is this a bad idea? The bamboo is only 40 miles away.
I plan on runners Henon, Robert Young, a moso and a few others. They are currently 30-60ft.
Any advice on how to transport large bamboo is much appreciated.
