Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bamboo is a crafting material and item you can get for the first time in New Horizons. To find bamboo, you have to first unlock the Airport after the first day of the game.
Animal Crossing New Horizons Bamboo: Where to Find
Once you can fly to a new island, you can use the Nook Miles Ticket to go to a new island and collect its resources.
The islands are randomly generated, so sometimes you won't actually land on an island that has bamboo. Our third island visit had bamboo, so if you're not able to find it immediately keep trying and you'll be sure to get it some time during the natural course of gameplay.
Unlike previous Animal Crossing games, there is now a difference between what kinds of plants you can use. When you find a bamboo tree, you can chop it down to get bamboo stalks, but you won't be able to plant them. You'll have to dig up bamboo shoots, which you can use to grow your very own bamboo trees back on your island. They'll look like any other item buried in the ground.
