Our Tonkin bamboo stick is available from 10 to 35 mm in diameter and in various lengths. Tonkin bamboo stick is beautiful, strong, straight and dimensionally stable. Tonkin sticks have hardly any gradient along the entire length of the stick.
These bamboo sticks are often used to support trees, plants and flowers. These sticks are also great for creative purposes in schools, clubs, businesses or in the home. The Tonkin bamboo sticks are slightly bendable when of sufficient length and are therefore not suitable for large constructions.
We also have these sticks in our showroom and inspiration garden. Here you can view this Bamboo Stick Tonkin and possibly pick and take it directly from our warehouse. Because we buy our materials directly from the source, with us you are assured of the best price and the most beautiful sticks.
WORKING WITH BAMBOO
Bamboo canes can be connected in many different ways. Most techniques use rope and/or threaded ends. But more advanced methods, such as the fish mouth connection or peg-and-hole connection, are also possible.
Of course you can also bamboo stick screwed. Here we recommend to always pre-drill to minimize the risk of cracks.
Bamboo is best cut with a Japanese saw. This special bamboo saw has small sharp teeth that you can easily, quickly and precisely cut.
If you want to place bamboo canes in the ground, we recommend to apply Bamboo Ground Protector to the part that is placed in the ground. This special black coating preserves the bamboo and protects it from rot.
Each bamboo pole is unique. Color differences and variations in the width of the bamboo canes are normal with this natural product. Vertical cracking is also a natural characteristic of the material. Especially in the hot and dry months of the year, vertical cracks can appear in bamboo. In humid and cold weather, the cracks are smaller than in dry and hot weather. The cracking of bamboo does not directly affect its lifespan.
A natural characteristic of bamboo poles is that the canes are thicker at the base than at the top. The gradient of the bamboo canes depends on the bamboo species and the length of the cane. Our indicated dimensions are always measured at the thickest end of the bamboo stick. Are you looking for a specific size? Feel free to visit us to pick out the bamboo sticks yourself.
Bamboo is a natural product, therefore bamboo poles are never 100% straight and there may be color differences between them. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
