Bamboo

Hello My landlord had tree trimmers cut our bamboo.. the bamboo was almost 20 feet and they whacked it down to 6. I'm so sad. Will my bamboo ever grow to that height again? Should I buy more bamboo and plant it? I have multiple varieties

That is unfortunate! On the upside, your bamboo will eventually grow back. It is a relative of common yard grasses, and tends to grow as such. Many of those cut shoots will re-sprout closer to the top where it is cut. Along with more shoots that form from the ground. What he has done to prune them will only make them thicker, and grow back more vigorously. Bamboo can tend to be a little invasive.
