Other materials used in manufacture include water, chemicals for breaking down the trees into usable fiber, and bleaches.

Is paper made out of wood or leaves?
The overwhelming majority (about 95 percent) of the raw material used to make paper, though, comes from trees. To make paper from trees, the raw wood must first be turned into “pulp.” Wood pulp is a watery “soup” of cellulose wood fibers, lignin, water, and the chemicals used during the pulping process.
Can we make paper without trees?
Paper can be made without trees. One acre of kenaf, a plant related to cotton, produces as much fibre in one year as an acre of yellow pine does in twenty. Paper can also be made of material such as hemp. The pulp made from non- tree sources is also less expensive than that made from trees.
