    Yes, bamboo is scientifically a grass, but this article has an interesting debate over whether it’s a tree or a grass. If bamboo were a tree, then it belongs to the forest department and would be sold to paper companies for potentially very cheap rates. It bamboo is a grass, then it would be considered minor forest produce. The Indian Forest Act of 1927 classifies bamboo as a tree, so it can be used for timber. This may have negative economic implications because minor forest produce is a source of economic and ecological wellbeing for communities surrounding the forest.
