Abstract
FPInnovations conducted a ground-based ash and biosolids spreading trial in Quebec. One treatment used a horizontal spinner as a spreading method and the other treatment used a line-dumping method. The trial showed that deflector plates helped to increase spreading uniformity. The trial results were also used to create a costing model that calculates productivity and the costs of spreading ash or biosolids using the two application methods.

Abstract
The reduction of costs related to the establishment of regeneration and the adoption of safe working methods are part of the orientations of FPInnovations' silvicultural are part of the orientations of FPInnovations' silvicultural operations research program. It is within this framework that a comparative within this framework that a comparative analysis of the costs associated with the distribution of seedlings in containers (boxes) versus the distribution of seedlings in boxes was conducted. This study was conducted in the Maritimes, but the results are encouraging results encourage a similar study to be conducted in Quebec.
Abstract
La réduction des coûts relatifs à l’établissement de la régénération ainsi que l’adoption de méthodes de travail sécuritaires font partie des orientations du programme de recherche en opérations sylvicoles de FPInnovations. C’est dans ce cadre qu’une analyse comparative des coûts associés à la distribution de plants en récipients (caissettes) versus la distribution de plants en boîtes a été menée. Cette étude s’est déroulée dans les Maritimes, mais les résultats probants encouragent la tenue d’une étude semblable au Québec.

Abstract
The intent of this primer is to answer the typical questions of land managers who are considering spreading wood ash on forest land in Canada. Although the specific details of implementing an actual ash-spreading plan are not covered, this primer will help managers understand the rationale for using wood ash as a soil amendment agent and the scope of developing an as-spreading program for their particular area. A general overview of the related legislation is included.
