Abstract
FERIC monitored a prototype machine designed to perform simultaneous crushing and scarification for the treatment of burned sites. The prototype was productive, but couldn't always produce an adequate number of plantable microsites, particularly on sites with thick humus.

Abstract
This report discusses various methods for improving operational effectiveness and decreasing the severity of the disturbances typically associated with regenerating burned sites. The report compares methods proposed for more difficult conditions with conventional windrowing, and also discusses lighter and more economical site preparation techniques. It emphasizes the importance of carefully targeting each type of treatment to the appropriate conditions to avoid unnecessarily high costs and levels of site disturbance.

Abstract
Sites that have regenerated after a fire present unique conditions for the release of natural regeneration. For example, the high density of regeneration on jack pine sites leads to a high treatment cost for precommercial thinning. In addition, on sites where the trees have not been harvested after the fire, the large quantity of standing burned stems poses an increased safety risk to the workers. In this study, a mechanized release treatment reduced the cost of precommercial thinning in high-density stands and permitted treatment of stands that had not been harvested after fire.

Abstract
Les sites régénérés après feu présentent des conditions particulières pour les travaux d’entretien de la régénération naturelle. La forte densité de la régénération dans les sites de pin gris entraîne un coût de traitement élevé pour l’éclaircie précommerciale. De plus, dans les sites non récupérés après feu, la grande quantité de tiges brûlées sur pied représente un risque élevé pour la sécurité des travailleurs. L’essai d’un dépressage mécanisé a permis de réduire le coût de traitement dans les peuplements de forte densité et de réaliser les travaux d’éclaircie précommerciale dans un site n’ayant pas été récolté après le feu.
