Do you sell your bamboo?

topsiebeezelbub(z7 Al)September 1, 2013

I have been thinning out my bamboo and used a lot of it in projects, but still have lots...noble bamboo and black bamboo. I wonder if there is any market for the canes...the green canes are 30 to 40 ft and around 4' across..I can't bear to put them out for the garbage! Has anyone tried to sell on Crags list? I could just give them away to whoever wants it, but I really could use some buy plants!

You could try selling them to a garden center or nursery, but you would need to let them dry out first. One of my local large nurseries carries every size up to about 4" in diameter, and they get a pretty penny for them.

If it were me I would try craigs list. If you can, stock pile these for a few years and then sell it off as bulk. If someone is looking for bamboo to build something they would be more apt to buy what they need in one deal.
How many do you have and their approximate sizes?
