Abstract
In an effort to optimize the use of mechanization in partial cutting, FERIC investigated alternatives to single-tree selection, including patch and shelterwood cuts. By targeting single-tree selection for daytime hours, and the latter two approaches for night work, the costs of mechanized felling (with a feller-buncher) could be decreased. However, achieving this result requires careful allocation of cutovers to the different treatments and times of year.

Abstract
Dans le contexte de ses recherches pour optimiser la mécanisation des travaux de jardinage, FERIC a examiné le déroulement de traitements de coupe progressive et de jardinage par trouées. En assignant une abatteuse-groupeuse au jardinage par pied d'arbre pendant les postes de jour et en réservant les autres travaux pendant la nuit, des réductions importantes de coûts d'abattage sont possibles. L'importante question de la planification annuelle et de la répartition des travaux est examinée.
