Re: Bamboo shoots?

Your neighbor is either a fool or completely selfish and uncaring of his
neighbors.  That would irritate me to no end.  He could have planted the
clumping type of bamboo instead apparently he choose the running type.
Plant destruction isn't my forte and maybe Jim will help with this but I
remember him mentioning diesel oil for a quick death.  Otherwise you have
quite a job ahead of you.

As for edible you better find out the species and see if he has been
spraying anything on it.  Besides there is no way you will keep that stuff
out of your yard with a whole herd of sheep.
