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
In 1996 FERIC studied commercial thinning on seven operating areas in Alberta in order to quantify the effect of tree size and stand density on harvester and forwarder productivities. As well, the cost of harvester and forwarder operations was determined and slash loading and damage to residual trees were measured.

Abstract
In 1999, FERIC cooperated with the Forest Ecosystem Branch, Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management (SERM) in an assessment of the Donaren 870 H silvicultural mounder operating on two site types in Saskatchewan. Areas shear bladed and those not shear bladed were studied to compare the quality and quantity of mounds produced.

Abstract
The majority of wood hauled by trucks commonly occurs during the winter months when forest access roads are frozen. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) performed a study to explore how log transportation could be extended into the summer months when roads are not frozen. FERIC used the Opti-Grade system to compare truck travel speeds between the summer and winter operating months over a two-year period and to help identify variables affecting travel speeds.
