Most trees used for paper come from “managed timberlands” – trees that constitute as an agricultural crop, like vegetables on a farm, even though the trees may look like just another forested area. These trees are grown specifically to be made into products for human use. Trees that are cut down for paper production do not come from parks or wilderness areas.
Besides the traditional trees used, paper is also made from sugar, bamboo, and hemp. The Sugar Cane Paper Company makes paper products like tissues, plates, and more from sugar. Sugar cane paper is easy to find online and it’s 100% biodegradable. Although not that available, bamboo grows faster than trees and needs less water. Hemp requires few if any pesticides to thrive, helps control erosion, and contains nutrients and nitrogen that end up back in the soil, plus it’s biodegradable. The link below gives examples of places online that you can find bamboo and hemp paper products.
