Abstract
Les forêts de feuillus tolérants fournissent une vaste gamme de produits, notamment des billes dont la valeur varie de 45 à 1700 $/m3. L'utilisaton de modèles de production convenant aux produits de commodité ne maximise pas la valeur qu'on peut tirer de ce type de forêt.

Abstract
FERIC a évalué un débardeur à câble équipé d’un treuil à double tambour et d’une radiocommande dans des opérations de coupe partielle de feuillus. L’augmentation de productivité a atteint jusqu’à 32 % selon la technologie utilisée, et la baisse de perturbation du terrain jusqu’à 40%. L’occupation par les sentiers et les dommages aux arbres résiduels ont également diminué (de jusqu’à 53 % et 79 %, respectivement). Les opérateurs montaient dans la machine beaucoup moins souvent, d’où une amélioration de la sécurité. Les télécommandes sont rentables pour toutes les machines, mais les treuils à double tambour coûtent probablement trop cher pour être installés sur de vieilles machines.

Abstract
FERIC assessed a cable skidder with a dual-drum winch and radio remote control in hardwood partial-cutting operations. Productivity increased by up to 32% depending on the technology used, and ground disturbance decreased by up to 40%. Trail occupancy and damage to residual trees also decreased (by up to 53% and 79%, respectively). Operators entered the machine significantly fewer times, thereby improving safety. Remote controls are cost-effective for any machine, but dual-drum winches are probably too costly to install on older machines.

Abstract
FERIC studied manual and mechanized felling operations with extraction by cable skidder within the Turkey Lakes Watershed in central Ontario. The study compared manual and mechanized clearcutting and partial-cutting operations (shelterwood and selection cuts) and found that felling and extraction productivities were greatest in clearcutting. However, site disturbance depended as much on how the operation was conducted as on the harvesting system used. From the perspective of riparian-zone management, each cut intensity and harvest system offers different advantages with respect to slash distribution and mineral-soil exposure, and their respective merits must be considered in light of the silvicultural objectives.

FERIC a examiné le potentiel de l'argile, de la cellulose, de la mousse de tourbe traitée, du polypropylène et de l'Oleo-Sorb pour capter des huiles ou carburants déversés provenant d'équipments forestiers mobiles. Tous ces matériaux étaient efficaces mais à des degrés divers, et ils variaient également par le coût.
