Abstract
"La durée et les conditions de stockage des bois ronds durant l’été ont des conséquences négatives sur la qualité, le rendement et les propriétés du bois. La perte en eau, l’apparition de fentes, de coloration et de carie ne sont que quelques-uns des problèmes pouvant survenir."

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research institute of Canada (FERIC) conducted a study to assess the reliability, effectiveness, and cost of airborne infrared remote sensing, mapping and analysis systems used in Alberta. Field trials were conducted to develop assessment methods and to facilitate preliminary tests of the hotspot detection capabilities of two airborne infrared remote sensing systems: an AWIS (Airborne Wildfire Intelligence System) mounted on a twin-engine aircraft, and a FLIR 2000 mounted on a "birddog" aircraft. Logistic regression was used to develop probability of detection models for each of the sensor and aircraft platforms evaluated. This report also describes the development of a simple model that allows fire managers to assess the cost effectiveness of alternative technologies.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) and the B.C. Ministry of Forests’ Resource Tenures and Engineering Branch surveyed users of closed-bottom corrugated-steel embedded culverts to find installations that generally conform to the Fish-stream Crossing Guidebook that was released in 2002 under the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia Act. This report describes seven sites that were visited, and includes the installation procedures and costs for each of the sites.

Abstract
A multi-agency trial was established to determine the impacts of commercial thinning on the growth, yield, and development of white spruce stands. The commercial thinning operation was completed using a Timberjack 1270 harvester and a Timberjack 1210B forwarder. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) monitored the harvesting phase, determined the operational cost and productivity of the harvester and forwarder, determined the residual tree damage, and evaluated the effectiveness of a brushing crew in increasing the productivity of the harvester in areas with high densities of non-merchantable trees.

Abstract
En peuplement de tiges de faible volume (< 0,1 m³/tige), le système de récolte en bois tronçonnés à 2 machines (abatteuse-façonneuse et porteur) est généralement peu productif. Il est alors recommandé d'utiliser une tête multi-tiges afin d'améliorer la productivité du procédé. Toutefois, en densité extrême (>1800 tiges/ha), même la tête multi-tiges ne permet pas au système à 2 machines d'être viable. Ce rapport identifie les conditions propices à l'utilisation d'un système à 3 machines (abatteuse-groupeuse, façonneuse à la souche et porteur) en présentant une synthèse des résultats d'études de quatre chantiers ainsi que des données d'études antérieures de FERIC. Un autre aspect abordé de manière succincte concerne la productivité des opérateurs de façonneuse en fonction de leur nombre d'années d'expérience.

Abstract
In Canada, most tree seedlings are shipped from nurseries in waxed corrugated cardboard boxes. These boxes are then usually disposed of by burning or by putting into landfills. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) investigated collapsible reusable plastic shipping containers as an alternative to waxed corrugated cardboard boxes for shipping tree seedlings. This report discusses types of tree seedling containers currently being used and tested in Canada, the feasibility of using collapsible reusable plastic shipping containers, and disposal options for waxed corrugated cardboard boxes.

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.
