Bamboo Forest

Bamboo forest

Initially intended as a winter shelter for honeybee colonies in the 1940's, this aggressive form of evergreen bamboo (Phyllostachys nuda) has evolved and spread into a large grove. Evergreen and hardy to -15 degrees Fahrenheit, this bamboo produce new culms each season that grow to 30' plus in a matter of weeks!  Each culm has a longevity of 5 to 7 years, at which point it is removed in order to keep the grove looking at its best.
The bamboo grove features a winding path and a bridge over a small stream. Always changing throughout the seasons, this grove never fails to transfix, calm and amuse the many visitors!
