Abstract
Dans le cadre de cette étude, nous avons mesuré divers facteurs relatifs à la composition (densité, teneur en humidité, distribution dimensionnelle, volume et profil de la pile) des résidus d'exploitation d'arbres entiers laissés en bordure de route après les opérations d'ébranchage et d'écimage, dans des peuplements d'épinette noire et de pin gris. Nous avons également évalué la performance d'un prototype modifié de la fragmenteuse-broyeuse de résidus (LRP) qui récupère la biomasse ligneuse pour la réduire en copeaux. Le rapport donne le coût qu'impliquent la fragmentation du matériel et son chargement dans une remorque en vue d'une conversion éventuelle en énergie, de même de le coût de remise en valeur du site forestier (en bordure de route) recouvert de piles de résidus.

Abstract
The composition (density, moisture content, piece-size, volume and pile profile) of full-tree logging residues left at roadside after the delimbing and topping operations was measured for both black spruce and jack pine stands. The performance of a modified prototype logging residue processor (LPR) which reclaimed and comminuted this material was also tested. Costs for the processed material loaded into a van for future conversion into energy and also for reclaiming the forest growing site under the roadside piles by spreading the comminuted residues over the cutover have been given.

Abstract
The objective of this study was to assess the potential for downsizing skidder requirements on soft ground through the use of high-flotation tires. The test was designed to compare the relative performance of a 90-kw skidder with conventional tires and chains to that of a 67-kw skidder equipped with high-flotation tires. The comparison criteria were short-and long-term productivity, fuel consumption, ground disturbance and operating costs. The trial was performed in the Abitibi region of Quebec under contract to the Ministère de l'Énergie et des ressources du Québec.

Abstract
Mr B. Jerabek is an inventor who designed a cutting attachment for chain saws which was claimed to minimize kickback energy while enhancing cutting performance and reliability. Six Jonsereds 520 SP power heads were modified by the inventor to meet the specifications of this cutting attachment design. The technical note describes the Jerabek concept, and kickback energy, cutting speed and lubrication efficiency obtained from both laboratory and field tests.
