How to Get Bamboo
Bamboo is a unique form of trees that do not appear on your native island. It can only be obtained either as a present in the form of a Bamboo Shoot, or found on a random Mystery Island with a bamboo forest template.
Bamboo grows similar to trees, except that once fully grown, they produce a Bamboo Shoot buried in the ground next to them, which can then be replanted to form a nursery bamboo. It can be harvested much like trees to get Bamboo Pieces, which are used for a variety of DIY projects.
During the spring months, there is a season item that can be randomly gained from chopping Bamboo called Young Spring Bamboo – it is much more rare than regular Bamboo Pieces, and is also used in special seasonal recipes.
Daisy Mae may also mail you a Bamboo Shoot after you’ve bought turnips from her.
