Severe human health and environmental hazards associated with commercial chemical preservatives has prompted researchers to look for alternative treatment techniques for preservation of bamboo species. In the present study, validation of traditional smoke treatment method to preserve bamboo species (D. strictus) has been performed. Physico-chemical characterization of smoke treated culms showed reduction in alkali solubility (18.8 %), starch (34.5 %) and moisture content (69 %) and considerable increase in lignin content (24.5 %). Improved decay resistance of smoke treated sample (weight loss: 12.2 %) as compared to severely degraded control samples (weight loss: 55.6 %) shows the potential of this indigenous method to preserve bamboo.
