Tonkin bamboo sticks
Our Tonkin bamboo stick is available from 10 to 35 mm in diameter and in different lengths. The 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 good for creative purposes in schools, associations, companies or in the home. 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 take a look at this Bamboo Stick Tonkin and, if necessary, pick it out directly from our warehouse. Because we buy our materials directly from the source, you are assured of the best price and the most beautiful sticks.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANINGOften the Bamboo Stick Tonkin is chosen not to treat it and let it fade and age naturally. However, our advice is to treat this bamboo stick with the Bamboo Booster for outdoor use.
The Bamboo Booster can be applied several times a year with a Maintenance Cloth for optimal results. Bamboo Booster nourishes and protects the bamboo.

More about Bamboo
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.
