Abstract
FERIC evaluated an operation in which mill biosolids were spread in a harvested poplar plantation. The operation was efficient, with spreading costs of $5/wet tonne. Spreading is a beneficial use of biosolids, but must be compared with conventional disposal methods to assess the operation's economics.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) undertook a project for Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to study the transportation of hog fuel from source to consumption site. In particular, FERIC gathered information from companies engaged in the supply, transportation, or use of hog fuel through direct visits or questionnaires. This report presents the types and costs of the various modes of transportation used—specifically truck, rail, and barge—and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Abstract
Ce rapport décrit une étude conjointe FERIC/MER visant à évaluaer l'effet de l'utilisation de pneus à haute flottaison pour des travaux de débusquage et de scarifiage sur des sols mous et des pentes raides. Les essais ont eu lieu en 1984 au Québec, sur des terrains présentant les conditions mentionnées, les premières dans la réigon d'Abitibi-Témiscamingue et les secondes au Saguenay-Lac St-Jean. La performance des pneus de grande largeur a été comparée à celle de pneus traditionnels équipés de chaînes et montés sur des débardeurs à câble de même puissance. Lors du débusquage, les critères de comparaison étaient la stabilité en pentes, la consommation de carburant, la perturbation du sol et l'influence sur le regénération pré-existante; quand le débardeur tirait l'équipement de scarifiage, on retenait comme critère la productivité, la capacité de traction et la stabilitéen pente, de même que la possibilité subséquente de plantation.

Abstract
The Bräcke badger was evaluated in a 3-row with 2 metre spacing configuration to determine any advantages or disadvantages the badger may offer over the conventional 2-row Bräcke cultivator. The Badger was evaluated in one short-term study as well as shift-level studies at two locations. The badger demonstrated high productivity in the short- and long-term studies. Although direct comparisons of 2- and 3-row machines were not feasible, there appears to be no reason why the 50% productivity increase per productive hour of the wider machine cannot be achieved. Therefore, the cost per hectare of the badger can be more or less than the cultivator, depending primarily on the cost of the larger prime mover that is required and the number of scheduled hours. The main advantage of the badger is its versatility in that it can be matched with various sites and silvicultural prescriptions.
