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.

If bamboo does not have dirt, grass, or another piece of bamboo below it, it will drop as an item.

Crafting Ingredient

Six pieces of bamboo are required to craft a raft.
