DescriptionThe American Bamboo Society (ABS) was formed in 1979 and became incorporated in the state of California in 1981. Today they have over 1100 members living throughout the US and in 39 other countries. The ABS issues a bimonthly Newsletter and a Journal, which is issued irregularly. The ABS also sponsors lectures, conferences, tours and plant sales in the Chapter areas. Chapters maintain bamboo libraries, distribute publications and donate plants to public gardens. Their web site includes a comprehensive list of bamboo species

The objectives and purposes of the Society are:
  • To provide a source of information on the identification, propagation, utilization, culture and appreciation of bamboos. To disseminate and store this information, the Society maintains a library of references and publishes a Journal and a Newsletter.
  • To promote the utilization of a group of desirable species by development of stocks of plants for distribution to botanical gardens and introduction to the general public.
  • To preserve and increase the number of bamboo species in the United States.
  • To plant and maintain bamboo gardens to display the characteristic beauty of mature plants and to provide plant material for research in the taxonomy, propagation and culture of as large a number of species as possible.
  • To support bamboo research in the field and to establish whatever facilities are deemed necessary to carry out the research projects approved by the Directors.
