How was Paper Made?

Paper was, and is still made made from trees! The first step in the process is to remove the bark from the trees, (this is called debarking.) Then the logs are placed into a chipper which cuts the size of the logs into small chips. After which these chips are cooked, washed, bleached, placed into a beater, refined, screened for over-sized chips, drained, dried, sized, smoothed, till finally placed on a reel for further processing (where the type of paper will be determined.)
