There is a bamboo forest in Maui, Hawaii. Maui also houses bamboo farms and manufacturing, some of which claim to be organic. However, their bamboo does not support the same type of wildlife it does in Asia. There are no panda bears in Hawaii.
Most of the wild bamboo that grew in America was cleared out for farmland while the Spanish, British, and French were trying to colonize the area. Namely, Missouri, which used to have quite a bit free bamboo forests, got cleared out by settlers after the Native Americans were cleared. They’re called Canebrakes, check it out!
Bamboo does amazingly well in parts of Oregon. I have personally grown several varieties which quickly form groves. This Timber bamboo grove at Bamboo Valley in Albany, Oregon is very impressive.[img_assist|nid=204217|title=Timber bamboo in Oregon|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=75]
