The decreasing number of quality wood in accordance with the wood class as stipulated by the Indonesian Timber Construction Regulation (PKKI) requires the industry to innovate in providing construction materials from nature that are equivalent to wood. One of the natural materials with large numbers is bamboo material. One area with large number of potential is Banyuwangi. Bamboo is a material that can be used as a construction material in the field of civil engineering which has strength but cannot be used optimally. One of these limitations is the bamboo character itself. The natural character of smooth, cylindrical bamboo, but inconsistent in size, large at the base and smaller at the end. The use of bamboo as a construction material requires further research, especially on the characteristics of the building structure. One of them is tracing the characteristics of bamboo from the tensile strength and compressive strength of bamboo. This research aims to map the types and potentials of endemic bamboo in the Banyuwangi area based on their properties of tensile strength and compressive strength. Based on the results of tensile strength, Ater bamboo has the highest tensile strength followed by Ori bamboo, Tutul bamboo, Manggong bamboo, Andong bamboo, Hitam bamboo, Olet bamboo, Apus bamboo, Legi bamboo, Petung bamboo, Ampel bamboo and Jawa bamboo. Based on the tensile strength data and combined with the thickness and bamboo diameter, Petung bamboo, Tutul bamboo, Ampel bamboo, Ater bamboo and Kuning bamboo, it becomes a 5 priority of bamboo in determining construction materials and making laminated bamboo. For the selection of construction materials that withstand pressure, Batu bamboo, Pecut bamboo, Ater bamboo, Legi bamboo, Hitam bamboo and Jawa bamboo are priority choices. This is based on the compressive strength value of the material.
