Four representative samples of new and old leaves from six species of wild, uncultivated tropical trees were investigated for chemical composition, in vitro (pepsin/pancreatin) digestibility and physico-chemical characteristics as affected by leaf senescence (new, recently open at the top of branches and old, near to yellow color at the bottom of branches). The tree species investigated were mulberry (Morus alba), moringa (Moringa oleifera), hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis), flemingia (Flemingia macrophylla), gliricidia (Gliricidia sepium) and trichanthera (Trichanthera gigantea). All N characteristics studied showed a significant (P0.05) interdependence amongst them, including the linear, inverse relationship, although rather low (r
