A big thank you for the concern shown from those of you who wrote or called in concerning our hives in the Rowlett area, near Dallas. Our hives appear to have been untouched because of the excellent bamboo windbreaks the landowner planted 11 years ago. This is not the first time bamboo windbreaks have thwarted high winds from tornadoes near our hives. Here's a little insight into why bamboo works so much better than other types of windbreaks: Bambusa ventricosa, a species of bamboo suitable for windbreaks, works well because it is well branched from the ground to the top. The long slender culms (stems) and the dense, repetitive leafing pattern disperse wind energy more effectively than trees. The bend of the cane is more like that of grass - very flexible. A row of bamboo is very elastic and can absorb wind bursts in excess of 120mph. It also helps that when bamboo breaks, it splits without immediately separating. This prevents catastrophic failure within single plants as well as rows of plants. In addition to its elasticity, the tensile strength of bamboo is excellent. It suffers permanent distortion at about 142 MPa with a breaking point at 265MPa. Structural steel deforms at about 250MPa, and breaks at 400MPa. It starts to become woody when it reaches maximum height. Some 6 to 8 years at maturity, its outer surface gains silica which makes it very hard. The inside is softer than the outside which is more stable than typical wood which is softer on the outside than the inside. Bamboo is very elastic which makes it a good building material in earthquake zones. In Asia, bamboo is used for scaffolding - even for high rise buildings. When bamboo breaks, it splits without immediately separating. This prevents catastrophic failure. Bamboo forests are very good carbon sinks at a rate up to 12 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare. Thomas Edison used carbonized bamboo as a filament the first light bulb. Bamboo provided Alexander Graham Bell with a phonograph needle. There are more than 5000 documented uses for bamboo. Termites will not eat bamboo. Bamboo Forest After the 1945 Hiroshima nuclear devastation, bamboo was the first regrowth. Bamboo grows at sea level, and up to 3.7Km elevation. It expires 35% more oxygen than an equivalent group of trees. Harvesting bamboo does not kill it and a crop can be harvested every three to five years. Bamboo's root system is like a net and hold soil together so it prevents erosion. Bamboo has a tensile strength of 28000lbs/sq in, which is greater than steel.
