Abstract
Given the continuing efforts underway to develop the market for the use of mass timber in building construction (FPInnovations, 2014), restoring the use of timber in bridges can complement this effort and help to provide more opportunities for the developing mass timber supply chain.

Le Canada compte 347 millions d’hectares de forêt, ce qui correspond à près de 35 % de sa super cie. C’est beaucoup de stocks à gérer et surveiller pour le secteur forestier. Pour gérer avec succès une exploitation, une surveillance des stocks s’impose. C’est la raison pour laquelle les chercheurs du Centre canadien sur la bre de bois (CCFB) s’emploient à améliorer les systèmes d’inventaire actuels de manière à améliorer la façon dont les aménagistes forestiers, les gouvernements provinciaux et d’autres collectivités du Canada gèrent les forêts.

Abstract
Forests make up nearly 35 per cent – 347 million hectares – of Canadian land. For the forest sector, that’s a lot of inventory to manage and monitor. To run any successful business, inventory needs to be monitored. That’s why researchers at the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre (CWFC) are enhancing current inventory systems to improve how forest managers, provincial governments, and other communities across Canada manage forests.

Abstract
This study focuses on measuring the wood moisture content (MC), temperature, and relative humidity (RH) (and the corresponding vapour pressure gradients) through each wall assembly to assess its hygrothermal performance. Controlled moisture loads, in the form of vapour (achieved by maintaining a relatively high indoor RH) and liquid water (achieved by periodically injecting water to the wetting pads installed on the wood panels) are employed to stress these walls for investigating their moisture-related behaviour. After the wall panels and most instruments were installed but with the CLT directly exposed to the interior environment, a high indoor RH in range of 70-80% was maintained, starting mid-December 2020 inside the test hut to condition the wood to achieve comparable moisture gradients among the eight CLT panels. The test walls were closed in with interior framing (and interior insulation of walls No. 1 and No. 2) and drywall installed, followed with interior finishing in late January 2021. The indoor RH was afterwards set to be around 50%. Water injection is planned to start in the summer of 2021. Test results and performance of these walls will be presented and discussed in future reports.

Abstract
Au Québec, l’intervention de récolte forestière la plus répandue en forêt résineuse est la coupe avec protection de la régénération et des sols (CPRS). Cette intervention consiste à récolter toutes les tiges marchandes (10 cm et plus au DHP) tout en protégeant la régénération préétablie et les sols. Pour ce faire, la machinerie forestière se restreint à emprunter des sentiers espacés de manière à limiter les superficies perturbées. Dans les peuplements à structure irrégulière ou étagée, la CPRS n’est pas toujours le traitement le plus approprié. Ces peuplements sont composés d’une portion variable de tiges ayant un diamètre à hauteur de poitrine (DHP) de 10 à 12 cm qui pourrait contribuer de manière significative au volume d’un peuplement futur. Ces petites tiges sont dispendieuses à récolter, elles diminuent le rendement en bois de sciage et elles ont peu d’influence sur le volume total récolté. Pour aménager adéquatement les peuplements à structure irrégulière ou étagée, la coupe avec protection des petites tiges marchandes (CPPTM) a été développée. La CPPTM ressemble à la CPRS, à l’exception que les tiges de 10 et 12 cm (parfois jusqu’à 16 cm) sont protégées. Ce traitement est actuellement pratiqué dans plusieurs régions et sera ajouté à la 4e édition du Manuel d’aménagement forestier. Le présent document traite de l’approche opérationnelle de la CPPTM avec la machinerie forestière utilisée au Québec.
