Pre-cut poles save money, time, and additional labor work during the application process.

We are 100% committed to selling only top quality commercial grade products to our customers. Only the finest Tonkin and Moso poles are selected for our inventory and our half round poles are no different.

Half round bamboo poles have the same classic natural finish as our whole poles. Each half round pole has been precisely milled to have a smooth flat back for easy application to walls, posts, palapas, and more.

Sizes for Half Round Poles

Bamboo poles have a wide range of applications and are extremely flexible and durable. We sell both Tonkin and Moso natural finish half round poles that vary in size and length. Our Tonkin half round poles are available in 5 and 8 foot lengths with a 2 inch diameter width. Moso half round poles are larger and come in 5, 8, and 10 foot lengths with 3, 4, and 5 inch diameter widths.

If you choose to cut down half round poles yourself, use any fine toothed table, hack, hand, or band saw for preciseness.

(Note: These are industry standard sizes; all poles vary in character and color.)

Multi-Packs and Pole Bundles

We sell our bamboo poles in bundle packs to make ordering more economical. The number of poles available per bundle is determined by the pole size. Our Tonkin half round poles are available in packs of 20 while our Moso poles are available in 10, 8, and 6 bundle packs.

  • 3 inch diameter widths = 10 half round pole bundle packs
  • 4 inch diameter widths = 8 half round pole bundle packs
  • 5 inch diameter widths = 6 half round pole bundle packs

 Half Round bamboo poles are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional wood and landscaping building materials.

Sealing Will Preserve Natural Finish

If you’re planning on installing your half round bamboo poles outdoors, we recommend coating the poles with a water-based sealant or varnish. We recommend using Cabots Australian Timber Oil, also available on our website. The sealant will prevent weathering and keep the original color looking like brand new.

Environmentally Friendly

Bamboo is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional and popular wood building materials. Unlike traditional wood, bamboo doesn’t have to be killed in order to be harvested. Wood can take years before it grows back to a mature size. Each pole is cut at the root base allowing for regrowth over time. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and can grow up to 24 inches in just one day. Environmental benefits include a release of 35% more oxygen and soil erosion prevention. Bamboo is 100% renewable and is grown organically, free of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.


We offer free shipping on our 5 foot and 8 foot long half round poles. Our 10 foot half round bamboo poles do not qualify for free shipping. Due to the weight and size of the 10 foot poles, each must be shipped freight.

Note: We carefully inspect our bamboo poles before shipment and never package cracked poles. Bamboo is a natural product and can develop cracks in transit due to changes in climate and handling by carriers. Cracked poles are still safe to use for any project.
