Google up 926 Garza Ave. Dallas Tx.75216 It has a bamboo plot right next to the Church and the Pastor says you can have all you are willing to cut.

What Fishbonz said,
stevens park \ kessler park is full of it. I ask one lady if she wanted her boo thinned out and she ask what do I charge. I have been back several times and knock and ay thank's first. I use lopper's and allways clean up.

I use pruners myself
but the monster boo would require much more of an edge
most folks consider it a problem plant and will let you have some if you ask thumb

If you were going to suspend it off of a deep water dock how close together would you hang them, the slip is 40 feet long, sorry for all the rookie questions but I have never baited a dock before, thanks.

Ok I think I figured out how I want to make my bamboo attractors, I am going to take 4 24 inch long pieces of 2 " pvc and concrete them into a 5 gallon bucket at a slight angle, drill a hole through each one near the top, put a bamboo in each one, drill through the bamboo and run a wire through the hole to fasten, I will have also placed something in the concrete to tie to for suspending from dock, I figure by doing it this way I can just pull them up every so often and replace the bamboo, what do you think ?
