The present study aims to utilization of natural phytochemicals present in tree barks. Different parts of plants like bark, wood, leaves, roots, fruits contain tannin and have variable quantity. Very less species have sufficient quantity of commercial importance. Tannin has commercial importance in various industries. During the study, isolation of tannin and test of Glycoside of trees of college campus were done .Bark of some trees have sufficient amount of tannin and glycoside. In our investigation tannin isolated from Mango, Neem, Gulmohar, Kademba and Kachnar Barks. The range of Percentage of tannin found in the bark of some trees from 14.04% to 19.40% was recorded.
