Bamboo - Guadua Angustifolia (Kunth)
Bambulandia‘s Expertise in Bamboo handling

Guadua Angustifolia (Kunth)
, endemic to Latin America, is becoming well known as a greatly desirable building material. Highly appreciated by Simon Bolivar for its watershed protection and praised by Alexander von Humboldt for its wide variety of uses, it is being utilized in construction today by both the rich and the poor of South America.

The mechanical properties of bamboo are extraordinary and the plant may well become what some experts already call "vegetable steel", since the fiber strength of the outer bamboo is the same or slightly above conventional untreated steel.

Bamboo combines technological and aesthetic beauty with social consciousness and can fill an entire gap of human needs. Bamboo is light enough to produce furniture but stunningly, it is also strong enough to find use in construction and architecture. Bamboo is highly renewable and its cultivation can help to fight soil erosion.
