This variety of Bamboo (Bambusa arundinaceae) is not available in Chinturu area. But our tribal community use this for toddy tapping. This Bamboo made into pieces single nod or double nod (Tikka or Gontam) and fix at the top of the Polmyrah Tree for tapping juice (Toddy). This person brought these pieces from 40 Kms away i.e. Maredumilly forest area, he  incurred Rs.900/-  for only transport excluding cutting charges (personally done) carrying to Road point and loading charges, he will get 100 Tikkas approximately he says. They heat the bamboo like this for extending durability.
