What’s in a Tree? It’s More Than Just Paper.
Just about everyone knows that paper is made from trees. But paper is only the beginning. Almost every part of a tree can be used to make something useful. When you add them all up, there are more than 5,000 products made from paper and paper-making by-products. Many are common and others, like football helmets, may surprise you. And the best part? Trees are a renewable resource. With proper forest management, Minnesota’s trees will last for generations to come.
