    Jay is right about the black (Nigra) bamboo...it grows slower, not so big and slowly spreads. I planted my Nigra at the same time as the Moso...it is just now reaching 1 - 1.5 inches diameter, none over 20 feet tall. It makes beautiful canes.

    Justin....here you go...these folks list a lot of species for Canada...even Moso which surprises me:

    Awesome Gary! I think you are a big kid at heart.
    BTW tell the guy to get some proper foot ware on.

    That is awesome Gary, thank you for sharing. Rigging derricks like that improvised one is true rigging, a skill that is quickly disappearing in modern times. Awesome use of the bamboo too, something you don't get to see everyday here in the states.
