Bamboo can be broken with anything, but using an axe will speed up the process.
Rafts drop bamboo when broken.
Bamboo spawns in mountain, plains, and forest biomes.
The bamboo block can be crafted back into four bamboo.
Bamboo can be used to fuel a smelter, although they don't supply as much fuel as coal would. It can also be used in any crafting recipe that might otherwise require sticks. Since bamboo grows much quicker than trees, they are easier to collect and use as sticks. If you break the base of the bamboo, or the block below said base, all bamboo on top will break too.
Six pieces of bamboo are required to craft a raft.
The bamboo block is crafted using four bamboo.
Bamboo can replace sticks in any crafting recipe, so there are many other uses for bamboo.
