bambooConsidered as “green gold” by many enthusiasts, bamboo offers various opportunities—may it be for construction, handicraft, furniture-making, and other agricultural and industrial purposes. Aside from these, did you know that bamboo can play a vital role in reforestation?

Although it is true that bamboo is not technically a tree, planting and cultivating it is no less beneficial for people and the environment. In fact, it is a great alternative to rehabilitate the country’s large tracts of denuded land because it has a wide range of adaptability to adverse soil and climatic conditions. Unlike most tree species, harvesting will not kill bamboo which means topsoil erosion and other negative effects of tree-felling are reduced.

I'm interested in propagating bamboo. Will ATI add a course regarding bamboo?
