Abstract
FPInnovations, in cooperation with Alberta Transportation and the Laval University i3C Chair, undertook a review of the starting threshold for initiating winter weight hauling in Alberta. The objective of this project was to conduct an engineering analysis of freezing pavements to determine the minimum frost depth at which log hauling at winter weight premiums (WWP) in Alberta could start without compromising pavement service life. The report describes literature on freezing pavement engineering, Canadian winter weight policies, a controlled trafficking simulation of an instrumented pavement as it was frozen, and subsequent modeling to valiidate results and extrapolate results ot a wider range of pavement structures. It was recommended that the current 1.0 m starting frost depth threshold be reduced to a depth of 700 mm.

Abstract
In 1997, FERIC, Alberta Research Council (ARC), Ainsworth Lumber Inc., and Daishowa-Marubeni International Ltd. conducted a study to determine the productivities and costs of various methods of managing logging debris in aspen cutblocks. Conventional roadside processing, two in-block processing treatments (intermediate skid and at-the-stump processing), and roadside processing with subsequent dispersal of slash into the block were assessed.

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
FERIC a réalisé deux essais dans le nord de l'Alberta en vue d'évaluer diverses méthodes de construction de routes temporaires d'accès en forêt, dans des régions où le gravier est rare et où prédominent les sols à texture fine. Les essais consistaient à comparer la performance des designs de routes Fossé-V, Surélévation de 0,5 m et Surélévation sur enracinement, construites avec et sans compactage. Le rapport résume les principales conclusions de l'étude aux fins d'utilisation comme référence dans la construction de routes.
