Abstract: Wood fibres are the most abundantly used cellulose fibre. They have been extensively used in the modern composite industry due to their specific characteristics. This chapter systematically describes the structure, properties, processing and applications of wood fibres as reinforcements in natural fibre composites: first, the nature and behaviour of wood fibres and the developed technologies for the modification of wood fibres to enhance physical and mechanical properties (e.g. surface functionality and tensile strength) are investigated; the matrices and processing techniques for the development of wood fibre composites are then discussed; and finally, the properties and applications of wood fibre composites in industrial sectors are presented.
