African Bamboo Forestry manages bamboo forests in a socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable manner, supplying FSC-certified bamboo to its customers. We work with Yushania alpina, a species of bamboo native to 12 African countries including Ethiopia. The species is non-invasive, native and grows to 12cm in diameter and 20m in length. Given its highland predominance, it preserves the mountainous land of Ethiopia that would otherwise be prone to erosion. We source it from three different areas; community bamboo, managed forest bamboo, and plantation bamboo.
