The Pacific Northwest Chapter of the American Bamboo Society Presents:
PNW Chapter ABS Winter Presentation
January 31, 2015, 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM
Bill deWeese Classroom, Hoyt Arboretum (MAP)
Presentation Title: Looking into Moso plantations, China
I have been working as an independent consultant to commercial companies interested in developing bamboo plantations in the U.S. Most recently, concerns regarding the availability of bamboo plants for research plots, and the clonal integrity of bamboo seedlings produced in-vitro, have led me to question of the feasibility of growing moso bamboo as a source for paper pulp in the United States.
China is reported to have both the largest and the fastest growing bamboo sector, involving more than ten million bamboo farmers, providing 35 million jobs and generating a market value of over 10.5 billion U.S. dollars of exports of various bamboo products for the global market. Moso bamboo (Phyllostachys pubescens [syn. edulis]) has the highest ecological, economic and cultural value of all bamboos in Asia, accounting for almost 70% of the total area of bamboo growth. This bamboo alone is valued at 5 billion U.S. dollars of annual forest production in China. For these reasons, I traveled to China to find out first-hand about moso plantation development, and other aspects of moso cultivation that is required for successful translation in the United States.
I went to China in February 2014 to ask questions and visit plantations. Please come hear and see my impressions.

Shmu,
Do you have Javascript turned off? I checked in both FireFox and Internet Explorer and it worked for me. Javascript changes the AT to @ so hopefully email harvesters do not get everyone's address.

Are you planning to be at the presentation?

Bill

Hi Bill:

Yes, I am planning to attend. I may also bring my brother along.

My problem seems to be with HughesNet. Their Turbopage tool messes a lot of online stuff up, and is a known problem.
