Bamboo Poles

  • Like all lumber, the diameter of most dried poles is often less than the named measurement at the base.
  • Unlike lumber, bamboo canes usually are smaller at the top than at their base. Click here for SIZE CHART.
  • Bamboo poles are naturally subject to developing some cracks over time depending on temperature and humidity.
  • Cracks do not affect the integrity or beauty of the canes.
  • We will do our best to supply you with the most attractive poles available but we cannot guarantee against natural cracking that may occur during or after shipping.
  • If you don't see the size you need, we can probably cut the exact size you want from our bamboo groves. Quantity discounts are available. Click here for shipping information.
  • If you have questions that are not addressed below, don't hesitate to contact us. We're always glad to help. We can be reached by phone 352-429-2425 or text 352-223-4566

DESIGNER QUALITY - POLISHED BAMBOO POLES
Grown in the USA
CLICK photo for more pictures

These honey-colored domestically grown poles have been heated in a kiln, which brings out the bamboo's natural oils to create a polished look - a truly beautiful, eye-catching finish. They're an excellent choice for any inside or outside project that demands a high quality product. Unlike imported poles which tend to be slightly smaller than the named diameter, the diameter of domestically grown, designer quality poles tend to be much closer to the named size at the base (they will taper to a somewhat smaller diameter at the top end.)

Looking for a bamboo that's one-of-a-kind special? Then 'Chunky Monkey' is the bamboo for you!  The unusually shaped, close-node culms are a distinctive feature of Phyllostachys aurea. This running bamboo is commonly known as Golden Hedge or Fishpole bamboo because of the natural handle that appears at the base of some culms. Occasionally, the handle or bulging nodes appear higher on the pole. These domestically-grown poles are a rich amber-brown. Like all our designer-quality polished poles, the shiny finish is a result of the drying process. Time spent in a low-oxygen kiln brings out the bamboo's natural oils. Because every pole is different, 'Chunky Monkey' works well in custom building projects and is an eye-catching addition to any home decor.

Although unusually broad at the base, the canes taper to approximately 3" at the top  Click here for SIZE CHART.  Although the poles are similar in appearance, no two are exactly alike. The amber-brown 'Elephant Leg' culms are domestically-grown, designer-quality poles that have been hand-torched to produce a distinctive, well-seasoned appearance.

6' to 10' long - $15 each

Dress up your decor with a display of 'Spotted Leopard' Bamboo Poles in a decorative vase or use them to make windchimes or other specialty projects. These tan-to-white poles are dotted with irregular-shaped brown-to-black spots. Slightly curved and slender, the canes have been culled from our own homegrown groves of Vivax Running Bamboo (Phyllostachys vivax). Vivax is one of our favorite runners. Not only do the live plants form a beautiful open grove, the culms vary in color from bright green (the newest canes) to light tan (the oldest). Just like with people, the older canes tend to get age spots but with bamboo we celebrate those marks of distinction! 'Spotted Leopard' Bamboo Poles are a Beautiful Bamboo specialty. You won't find this item anywhere else!




IMPORTED POLES
From China
CLICK photo for more pictures

These traditional-looking bamboo poles are the standard used for all types of indoor and outdoor applications. The smaller diameter poles are rice-colored with occasional natural markings of lighter or darker shades of tan. The larger diameter poles might be more accurately described as an amber brown color. Both the larger and smaller diameter imported poles are the perfect choice for any sort of indoor or outdoor project. Although most poles are straight, some have a slight bend and the diameters of all imported poles tend to be a little smaller than the named size, especially at the top, showing the natural taper as the bamboo canes were growing. Bamboo poles crack over time depending on temperature and humidity. Imported poles tend to crack more frequently than domestic poles do. Cracks will not affect the wood's integrity or strength. We will do our best to supply you with the most attractive poles available but we cannot guarantee against natural cracking that may occur during or after shipping. Click here for SIZE CHART.

HOMEGROWN POLES
Cut from our own groves
CLICK photo for more pictures

If you are looking for less expensive poles that do not necessarily need to be particularly straight, are not polished and have more of a funky, natural look than the imported or designer-quality domestic poles, consider our own homegrown poles. Cut from groves of running bamboo as well as from mature stands of clumping bamboo, these poles work very well as is for all sorts of outdoor applications - fences, garden features, wind chimes, benches, etc. where a natural weathered look is desired. For indoor applications, we suggest cleaning the poles (pressure washing works well) before applying your desired wood preservative or finish. Lengths over 6' will taper from bottom to top as the plant grows, so the top diameter may be an inch or more less than the bottom named diameter, and most poles over a few feet long will have some bends or curved sections. Freshly cut green poles are available with or without branches. They will remain green for several weeks before gradually turning tan or brown as in the photo. Click here for SIZE CHART.
