Topic: Harvesting oboe cane

Hello colleagues,

I am going to be on vacation in Guatemala next month and was wandering if anybody had any experience obtaining or harvesting   (oboe/e.horn/bassoon) cane there which suppose to be very good.

Is there any material anywhere I can read about harvesting cane?

Thank you for your help.
