Bamboo and Tree Removal

  • All removal jobs are quoted after an on-site inspection

 
The picture at the left shows some bamboo which had broken through a High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) barrier and escaped. It needed to be removed.  This is an example of what bamboos usually do to plastic barriers.  It takes only a few short years for the bamboo to build up enough pressure to burst through.  Much more readily however the bamboo will escape over, and sometimes under before bursting through.  Some bamboos can even punch through these barriers.

 
Here is bamboo which did not escape a barrier, but suffered terribly.  This bamboo was little over 10 feet tall.  It however would have made at least 20-30 feet without the barrier.  Barrier stunts bamboo.

Bamboo removed from a hillside in Beaverton.  -->
 


 

These photos are from another removal.  The usual--barrier ineffective and broken, bamboo escaped and ran where it wasn't wanted.  Bamboo Valley saves the day, happy clients feed us dinner :)
