From Bamboo Grove to Bamboo Crafts:

Four “Easy” Steps

Bamboo plants grow by creating new canes each year. Proper care of bamboo groves includes regular thinning of older canes, which stimulates the new growth. Mature canes may be harvested from the grove regularly, and these canes do not need to go to waste! Instead, bamboo can provide you with a sustainable building material grown in your own backyard.

Which species are best for GROWING strong building material?

Clumping bamboo tends to produce thicker walled, stronger canes than those of running bamboo. Striking Bamboo (Bambusa sp.) is a good choice for construction material as the canes have especially thick walls and hard wood. Punting Pole Bamboo (Bambusa tuldoides) is also an excellent choice, as it can get 30-50’ tall and is incredibly strong. Stone Bamboo (Phyllostachys angusta) and Temple Bamboo (Semiarundinaria) are examples of runners with particularly sturdy wood.

Any species will produce canes that can be useful, depending on the project. 

Running type bamboos are at maximum strength from 3-10 years of age for a given cane. Clumping bamboos take longer; they are at their best from 4-12 years of age.
