Abstract
Forest-origin biomass estimates were made by FPInnovations for a location in Northern Alberta, largely following the process previously established for six BC Timber Supply Areas using FPInterface (2010 13). The biomass inventory was based on 20-year harvest and road network plans for Crown land provided by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry as well as local forest tenure holders. Includes Excel data sheet which is saved separately at \\fpinnovations.lan\structure\Commun_Common\Publications\FOP/2017N38.XLSX

Abstract
There was no change to the moisture content of any of the western hemlock log sample sets during the study period between 1 Dec 2014 and 5 mar 2015. It seems that this lack of change is related to stability in environmental humidity experienced by the logs. Whether or not time since cutting influences the ability of Hw logs to change moisture content could not be conclusively determined by the study.

Abstract
Based on the data from this study and a literature review, there are two distinct trajectories for hemlock wood moisture content, depending on if the tree was felled before or after May. Hemlock trees felled before May gain the full benefit of spring drying according to the ambient conditions of their local micro-climate. Trees felled after May suffer from a physiological spike in moisture content that the tree generates to promote its growth and survive the summer soil drought.

Abstract
The problem of second-growth western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) sinking when watered continues to plague the coastal logging industry of British Columbia. A study conducted by FPInnovations in 2015-16 concluded that felled hemlock logs took two distinct trajectories in their drying patterns through time, depending on whether they were felled before or after May.

Abstract
Hemlock can have higher moisture content than most other native trees, causing them to sink. Hemlock lumens have large pits (valves) that allow easy transport of water into the wood. Bigger rings = bigger lumens. Younger hemlock or hemlock tops are more susceptible to sinking. The bigger the rings the more likely to take on water.

Abstract
Contamination of hog fuel along the supply chain was observed at Skookumchuk. FPInnovations recommends that the number of times hog fuel is moved be minimized, that operators be trained in correct handling procedures, that a penalty/reward system be instituted to habituate proper handling procedures, that cross logs be used beneath log decks, that hog fuel storage surfaces be paved or frozen, and that hog fuel produced in the field be ground directly into chip vans.

Abstract
Based on inventory information and a 20-year harvest queue, estimates of the amount of biomass available from forest harvest residues are estimated in $10 increments of delivered cost. For the 100 Mile House Timber Supply Area, 81,000 odt/year is projected to be available at $60/odt.
