Abstract
In 1991, Corner Brook Pulp and Paper Ltd. reintroduced full-tree systems to their operations, under the assumption that the technology had matured to the point that modern feller-bunchers, skidders and delimbers would be effective in Newfoundland conditions. Preliminary results from the productivity tracking of these machines seemed to confirm this assumption and Corner Brook Pulp and Paper now intend to harvest around 15 to 2O of their timber using this approach.

Abstract
The shelterwood system is often perceived as a silvicultural technique with a high implementation cost. FERIC thus developed a relatively inexpensive method for the first entry of a shelterwood system, the seeding cut, based on the selection of dominant trees: the 1-2-3 method. This method helps compensate for the productivity decrease experienced by harvesting equipment as a result of the reduced removal level. The present report summarizes various examples of the use of the 1-2-3 method, and provides guidelines to facilitate its implementation.

Abstract
Le système des coupes progressives est souvent perçu comme une technique sylvicole ayant un coût d’implantation élevé. FERIC a développé un processus peu coûteux pour la première intervention de coupe d’ensemencement avec sélection des dominants : la méthode 1-2-3. Cette méthode permet de limiter les baisses de productivité des équipements causées par à un prélèvement réduit. Le présent rapport fait état de divers exemples de la coupe d’ensemencement par la méthode 1-2-3 ainsi que de conseils pour faciliter son implantation.
