Windbreak / Noise Barrier
The thick foliage of bamboo not only provides great screens and hedges, but can also be great as a windbreak or noise barrier. This is a feature that is becoming more popular in areas where roads are becoming busier and natural bushland is being removed.
Many varieties of bamboo, either tall or short, are perfect as a fast growing windbreak around orchards. The extra benefit this creates is that of a spray drift and odour barrier.
