Conservation Director Explains State Bamboo Legislation

Westport Conservation Director Alicia Mozian today reminded residents that recently enacted state legislation does not make growing bamboo illegal but limits where it can be planted and sets fines for noncompliance. Image

The act, entitled “An Act Regulating the Planting and Sale of Running Bamboo,” was passed by the state legislature and signed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in June to address the growing problem with running bamboo.

“In the past few years bamboo has been planted in Connecticut with increasing frequency by homeowners on their property,” said Mozian. “The problem that has arisen with the bamboo’s popularity is that it can very easily grow beyond property lines and be a burden to the neighbors.”

The act passed by the legislature spells out financial responsibility for the grower of the bamboo if their neighbors are burdened and requires retailers and installers to warn consumers about the risks of growing bamboo on their property, and is applicable to any running bamboo planted on or before Oct. 1, Mozian said.
