  • Tonkin canes are naturally straight with only a slight taper.
  • A small but very strong, stiff and resilient bamboo species due to its thick walls.
  • Attractive creamy white color.
  • Tonkin bamboo has no lower branches which results in diminutive (flat) nodes.
  • High resistance against mold and insects, which makes it ideal for exterior use.

Common Uses

  • Famous as tree or plant support sticks and trellises in nurseries, greenhouses, plantations or gardens around the world.
  • Popular bamboo species for making split cane fly fishing rods.
  • Excellent bamboo for light construction such as furniture building, fences and screens.

General properties of bamboo poles:

  • The diameter of each bamboo pole varies. Our stated average diameters are always measured at the base (or the thickest part of the bamboo pole).
  • A natural property of bamboo poles is that they are thicker at the base than at the top. The taper percentage for Tonkin bamboo canes is about 10-15% over a length of 3 meters.
  • Bamboo is a natural product, therefore bamboo poles are never 100% straight.
  • Each bamboo pole is unique, therefore color differences are to be expected.
  • Vertical cracks can/will occur in bamboo poles, especially when used outdoors. Just like wood, bamboo expands or shrinks when temperature or humidity conditions change. Cracks, however, have no effect on the structural integrity of bamboo.
  • Bamboo used in outdoor conditions will weather over time. We advice to treat Tonkin canes with Bamboo Booster to preserve their natural color.
