Quantitative analysis of woods and barks of six indigenous tree species of north-east India grown in their natural habitat and different localities of Assam were investigated. Fuel value index, proximate analysis, ultimate analysis, and biochemical compositions were determined. The percentage weight loss by each tree species after 8 weeks of sundry was recorded in the prevailing climatic condition. It is found that fuel value index, carbon, volatile matter, and cellulose content of woods are higher than barks contrary to calorific value, nitrogen, ash, and hemicellulose content, which are found to be higher in barks than woods of all the tree species under investigation.
