It has primary xylem - so does coriander, tulip, the multitude of annual or biannual flowering plants.err ... bamboo doesn't have Xylem cells .. how can it be a wood?
For AGB(GNAS)/BLBS clubs bamboo arrows are NOT allowed with longbows/traditional recurve as the description for arrows specify wood arrows. Bamboo being a grass means they are not allowed. A good number of people have e-mails from AGB confirming this, we host a longbow shoot in which some of the archers used bamboo arrows, upon discovery of this they were allowed to continue shooting but unable to win anything. BUT as recurve/compound/barebow don't have any mention of materials for arrows then bamboo is allowed for them.So I assume that archers/clubs that don't agree with bamboo arrows also don't use bamboo constructed longbows? ;-)
