>>>HELP   anyone with sugestions on how to rid property of bamboo!  I had a
patch
of this never say die plant about 5 ft wide and 30-40 feet long...and at
least
20ft high in places!  Please help!  Any help in greatly thanked...!<<<

Failing Roundup, you might try another systemic herbicide such as Garlon 3A
or Pathway (Formerly called Tordon RTU).  You'll just have to keep after it.
It's tough to get rid of.  Mechanical methods are probably not as effective
as chemical because of the extensive below ground rhizomes.

In the meantime, you might as well experiment with various bamboo
construction techniques... scaffolding, furniture, houses, fishing poles,
and so forth.  <BG>
