● The plant I am going to talk about here is the bamboo plant.

● It is a very versatile and useful plant

● There are more than 1500 species of this plant all over the world.

● It can be grown in a multitude of habitat from sea level to 12000 ft.

● It is one of the most adaptable plants with many uses.

● For instance, it can grow in very degraded soils.

● Because of this it can be used to repair soil damaged by overgrazing and poor agricultural techniques.

● In addition it has a complex root network.

● This is ideal for preventing soil erosion and flooding

● Unlike most tree species, harvesting does not kill the bamboo.

● So, topsoil erosion and other adverse effects of tree felling are kept to a minimum.

● The most important point is that bamboo produces 35% more oxygen than other trees.

● Research has shown that bamboo can absorb as much as 12 tonnes of carbon dioxide per hectare per year.

● So, this plant can play a great role in stabilizing our country’s atmosphere.

● It can prove an eco­friendly alternative to slow­growing hardwoods.

● It is also being used by the construction industry for wooden flooring.

● It is very durable.
