How to find Bamboo In Animal Crossing New Horizons, it seems a lot of players are having trouble with this, so here’s a basic guide. To actually even have a shot at this, you’re going to need some Nook Miles. Use these at Tom Nook to head to a resource island. These randomly spawned tiny islands are basically a treasure hunt in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Players go there and are given a random tileset with a set loot table, which they can explore to their heart’s content. Bamboo in Animal Crossing New Horizons. is one of rare resources that can be gained from these islands.
Once you get lucky and hit on a resource island with Bamboo, start digging. Look for the cracks in the ground, some of these will spawn Bamboo Shoots, which can be taken back to your main island. Plant these on your island and after a few days, they will grow into bamboo stalks that you can cut for the bamboo you need to craft with. This can take a lot of work, so if you get a lucky roll, bring back as much of the stuff as possible.
And when you’re cutting the stalks on your own island, remember two things. For one thing, never cut down all the bamboo stalks on your own island. You don’t want to have to go through the grind of getting the right resource island again. Secondly, always have a basic stone axe or flimsy axe on-hand when cutting Bamboo. Using a Metal Axe on Bamboo will cut the whole tree down, you don’t want that.
You can also get a friend who has already done this to trade you some of the rare resource, but not everyone has that luxury.
