This enables the investor to have at own location, the most essential and rarest commodity, the bamboo seedlings, for jam starting a project or for expansion.
Equally, we also undertake international projects relating to the rehabilitation of wasteland, degraded land and mine areas, back to fully functional ecosystem using bamboo. It is well known that bamboo plantations have been used successfully to rehabilitate degraded land back in to productive, fully functioning ecological systems. Indeed, in their natural states, bamboo systems are intermixed with tree, shrub and herbaceous vegetation. This provides valuable habitat for numerous species at the soil and tree layer including spiders, butterflies, birds and other higher life forms. Equally, in it's natural environment, fallen bamboo leaves create natural mulch. The decomposing leaves also recycle useful nutrients, such as Nitrogen and Silica back into the soil. It's very own fallen leaves provide the necessary nutrients that get recycled back into the soil. We can convert rocky, sloppy and arid regions into productive grounds with fully functional ecosystem using bamboo. We have the resources! We have the know how! We can deliver!
We have large stock of bamboo seeds. We will send to you with a Phytosanitary certificate. Accordingly, se also send as air cargo, plantlets with a Phytosanitary certificate to any location.
