Grown in China and Southeast Asia, the many species of bamboo being used for bamboo laminate flooring are harvested after four or five years, cut into strips, dried in the sun, and then laminated either vertically or horizontally into two or three layer pieces. In order to ensure long life, the bamboo strips are treated with a preservative (this can be done before or after the strips are laminated), which brings out the rich color of the flooring for installation. As far as the actual flooring process goes, boards are created when the hollow round shoots of bamboo are sliced into strips.
