Abstract
Harvesting with 33-m trail spacing was proposed by FERIC as a way to meet the quality criteria for single-tree selection in hardwood forests in Quebec's public forests. The approach is, however, applicable to any partial-cutting treatment in hardwood forests, and the method was studied in 16 operations in 2003-2004. The approach represents an acceptable compromise between protection of the residual stand and operating costs, as the productivity of the feller-bunchers using this method decreased only slightly as a result of increased travel. The operations that FERIC studied did not all meet the target quality criteria, but provided an adequate level of protection of residual stems. The method requires a certain degree of control to limit the felling of non-marked stems, and the use of evaluation criteria specially adapted to this method would facilitate its implementation.

Abstract
FERIC a observé deux systèmes d'éclaircie commerciale dans des conditions comparables. Le premier impliquait un abattage-façonnage-empilage entièrement manuel tandis que le second, complètement mécanisé, employait une abatteuse-façonneuse de petite dimension. Deux porteurs de bois courts de capacité différente ont aussi été étudiés sur ce chantier. Les coûts en bordure de route dépendent en grande partie du salaire horaire versé à la main-d'oeuvre. Une analyse de sensibilité montre que les coûts de production estimés pour les deux systèmes étaient comparables (à 22,83 $/m3) lorsque les salaires versés atteignaient 19,22 $/heure prévue.

Abstract
FERIC studied two commercial thinning systems under comparable conditions. The first involved manual felling, processing, and piling, whereas the second was completely mechanized and used a small single-grip harvester. Two shortwood forwarders with different payload capacities were also studied in this operation. The costs at roadside depended strongly on the hourly wages for the workers. A sensitivity analysis demonstrated that the estimated production costs for the two systems were comparable (at $22.83/m3) when the wages reached $19.22 per scheduled hour.

Abstract
Spruce Falls Inc. demanda a FERIC d' étudier deux debardeurs a grappin equipes de pneus larges et extra-larges afin de comparer leur productivite de meme que la perturbation du sol liee a leur utilisation. Le Timberjack 450C (figure 1) etait chausse de pneus extra­larges de 68 po (173 cm) de largeur fabriques par Rubber Applicators Inc. Le John Deere 648 etait equipe de pneus de 50 po (127 cm) de largeur provenant de United Tire and Rubber Co. Ltd., pneus d'usage courant dans les operations de Spruce Falls. Comme les deux debardeurs possedaient par ailleurs Jes memes capacites, nous croyons que les differences observees etaient principalement attribu­ables a la difference de largeur entre les pneus. Le terrain etait plat et le drainage variait de frais a tres mouille. Les peuplements etaient composes surtout d' epinette noire avec une faible proportion de sapin et de tremble.

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.
