I would like to establish some privacy screens on my wooded acreage. Can you advise what fast growing bamboo will grow in TN and where could I buy some?

Bamboo can become a nightmare if you plant running bamboo rather than clumping bamboo so be sure you get the clumping kind. Black bamboo is well behaved, it clumps rather than runs and it grows tall enough to provide some privacy. I don't know where you can buy it in your area so you may have to purchase it online. Best wishes with your landscape.
