As I continue to build my statistical model of India’s forests and potential drivers of deforestation, I can’t help but be enamored by bamboo. I need land and I need to plant.

(This bamboo comes from an old growth stand in Madagascar when I was there in 2009. The photo doesn’t do justice to the monstrous size of this thicket. The creaking in the breeze was unnerving.)

    I’m also a fan of bamboo. It’s so versatile and useful. I’ve imagined owning a big piece of land on a mountainside, farming bamboo, and creating a market for its use locally.
