What sustainability comes down to is the use of natural resources that replenish themselves speedily; resources that are sustainable, renewable, and that don't require generations to grow or form again. And that is the beauty of bamboo. It grows fast. Some species can grow 50 inches in a day. The bamboo that goes into our fences is cut from groves about every three years, and after it's cut away, the plant is still alive, the root system is still intact, and it keeps on growing until the next harvest. When it's done right, harvesting is actually healthy for the plant.
