|Abstract:||Fibre quality and paper making properties of three potential weed species growing abundantly in the forests and waste land areas of north eastern region are studied. Morphological characteristics of the plants and proximate chemical analyses data show their suitability as pulping material as well as for making cordage. Pulp with high yields and paper with good physical properties can be produced from these plants. The fibre materials are also capable of producing good quality cordage with high physical strength properties.|
