Abstract
FPInnovations was approached to investigate the extraction of tannin from tree bark in British Columbia (BC). FPInnovations has been working on bark extraction over the last few years and proposed to focus this study on Western Hemlock which showed high tannin content in previous work. The extraction method developed by FPInnovations uses chemicals and elaborate equipment that requires the work to be conducted under strongly controlled conditions, such as a chemical laboratory. This report aimed to find a simpler extraction protocol that could potentially be used by coastal First Nations communities or other parties interested in extracting tannin from bark at a relatively small scale.

Abstract
The Saskatchewan Forest Products Buyers’ Guide provides key information about Saskatchewan forest products to buyers around the world. Saskatchewan has one of the most competitive business climates in North America. Our economy is strong and growing, including the forestry sector which is poised for growth and well positioned to meet increased global demand for forest products. The province of Saskatchewan is located in western Canada. Boreal forest covers the entire northern half of the province, totalling 34 million hectares, most of which is owned by the Government of Saskatchewan. The Commercial Forest Zone covers nearly 12 million hectares, and is suitable for commercial timber harvesting operations. The current annual allowable cut (AAC) is 8.2 million cubic metres of timber (4.8 million m3 of coniferous trees and 3.4 million m3 of deciduous trees). http://publications.gov.sk.ca/details.cfm?p=80471

Abstract
Work at the Eastern Forest Products Laboratory of Forintek Canada Corp. in fundamental and applied research is highly varied. The laboratory's facilities and equipment reflect this need for specia- lization. Its equipment is as basic to lumber production as saws, cutters, and dry kilns, or as complex as a steam press or fluidized -bed gasifier. These facilities allow researchers to carry out chemical, physical, and biological analyses of wood. Similarly, evaluation of wood products, and the processes by which they are made, is aided by laboratory and commercial-scale testing equipme- nt. In each area of research, the EFPL facilities assist research- ers in developing new, innovative systems and products. The indus- tries and governments that Forintek serves are the direct benefici- aries of this valuable resource. The following pages outline the key facilities and expertise available at Forintek's Eastern Forest Products Laboratory.

Abstract
The provinces own 90% of the forested lands. As proprietors, they are responsible for management, upkeep and protection of the forests. They should also develop them wisely, as intensively as possible, to improve their productivity and to generate for their communities the highest possible long and short term benefits. Forests cover 48% of Quebec. Of these forests 80% are softwoods, the rest being hardwoods, of which 8% are white birch and 6% poplar. Without counting those industries that use sawn wood, 70 000 jobs are directly provided by the sectors of forest exploitation, pulp and paper, sawmilling, and veneer. 31 thousand million dollars worth of products delivered in 1978, 700 million dollars paid in salaries. The sawmilling industry alone counts 25 900 employees and randks 9th by value of exports. The furniture manufacturing industry employs 15 900 persons. Wood products are often the only source of revenue for distant villages. Each year, today's cut is about 25 millions of cubic meters of wood annually. Of this volume, 3 million is lost to fire, insects and disease. About 40 400 hectares will have to be reforested each year because nature alone can neither perform the job in time nor will she choose the most useful species.
