I moved into my house 2 years ago and had an area say 18x3' with bamboo that reached nearly 20' tall. Needless to say it spreads like wildfire and so I cut it down to about 3' or so...the stuff can grow about 4' a day. I want to completely get rid of it...any ideas on the best way to completely get rid of it and never see it again??? If anyone wants it they can come get it FREE :)

Thanks

docbuttons,

"so I cut it down to about 3' or so...the stuff can grow about 4' a day"

- I don't think you are talking about bamboo. Bamboo culms
never "grow" once they start branching. If you were talking about boo shoots, for a 20' species, it won't grow
4' a day at your zone.

- are you sure it is bamboo instead of something else like reef?

If they're true bamboo, I would love to get some.
