I have recently come across some huge stands of what looks like P.Dulcis in Long Island,NY.We are in the midst of a brutal cold winter�and to boot, we had plenty of freezing rain and heavy snow which has taken its toll.With that said, i might have a chance to actually dig some of this bamboo.What is the best time to do this (spring or fall),and was hoping for some helpful tips�.The root balls are massive.As of now, i will be using a shovel.The stand is about 60 feet x 20 feet solid,over 20 feet tall.

Between now and spring -- before the bamboo starts putting energy into shooting -- is best. If you are going to try to do this with only a shovel you'll be out of luck. If you want some instructions on how to do divisions and what tools you need, go to My Page and email me.
