Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) carried out a short-term study of the Bräcke Planter mounted on an excavator. The study took place near Kamloops, B.C. on a small cutblock with slopes ranging from 0 to 35%. This report describes the planter, and its productivity and suitability for use in western Canada.

Abstract
In Canada, most tree seedlings are shipped from nurseries in waxed corrugated cardboard boxes. These boxes are then usually disposed of by burning or by putting into landfills. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) investigated collapsible reusable plastic shipping containers as an alternative to waxed corrugated cardboard boxes for shipping tree seedlings. This report discusses types of tree seedling containers currently being used and tested in Canada, the feasibility of using collapsible reusable plastic shipping containers, and disposal options for waxed corrugated cardboard boxes.

Abstract
Au Canada, les pépinières expédient la plupart des semis dans des boîtes de carton ondulé ciré. Ces boîtes sont ensuite brûlées ou déposées dans des sites d’enfouissement. L’Institut canadien de recherches en génie forestier (FERIC) a étudié la possibilité d’utiliser des contenants pliants réutilisables en plastique au lieu de boîtes de carton ondulé ciré pour l’expédition des semis. Le rapport traite des types de contenants pour semis couramment en usage ou mis à l’essai au Canada, de la faisabilité d’expédier les semis dans des contenants pliants réutilisables en plastique, ainsi que des moyens de disposer des boîtes de carton ondulé ciré.

Abstract
Reflective tarpaulins are used extensively in Western Canada to protect tree seedlings against solar radiation during transportation and on-site storage prior to planting. This report outlines heat transfer characteristics of new and used reflective tarpaulins, and a FIST (Fiberglass Insulated Seedling Transporter) canopy. Containerized white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) seedlings were exposed to heat while stored in boxes under tarpaulins. In a separate laboratory experiment, seedlings were pre-conditioned and exposed to heat. All seedlings were outplanted in nursery plots, and survival and growth were monitored.

Abstract
Les planteurs forestiers sont prédisposés aux dommages physiques parce que leur tâche est pénible et de nature répétitive. Ils devraient savoir comment pratiquer des méthodes de travail sécuritaires et comment sélectionner un équipement approprié, alors que les entrepreneurs en plantation devraient avoir des directives de sécurité qui réduisent au mimimum les facteurs de risque de dommages musculosquelettiques (DMS). Ces directives ergonomiques sont écrites pour les planteurs forestiers de l’ouest du Canada et leurs superviseurs dans le but de réduire ce type de blessures. Les planteurs forestiers de l’est du Canada pourraient également bénéficier de cette information, même s’ils utilisent des outils de plantation différents qui ne sont pas analysés dans ce guide.

Abstract
Tree cones collected in Western Canada are typically transported to seed extraction facilities in burlap bags. Systems of handling and transporting the cones in bulk have recently been developed and tested in Alberta. Lodgepole pine cones are shipped from the collection centre in Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) while spruce cones are put into trays at temporary storage facilities until the trays are shipped for processing. FERIC observed these systems to evaluate their advantages and disadvantages, and make recommendations for improvement.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) participated in a study involving injury reduction and performance enhancement for tree planters. The tree planters were assigned one of three treatments: consuming a placebo drink supplement, consuming an electrolyte carbohydrate beverage as a drink supplement, or following a physical training regimen for eight weeks prior to the planting season. FERIC determined the productivity and the quality of planting for planters working in the different treatment groups, and also determined if other factors, including experience, gender, time of day, and terrain conditions, influenced the results.

Abstract
Nous avons étudié en 1985 et 1986 six opérations manuelles de plantation dans le centre et l'est du Canada. Les principaux objectifs visaient à déterminer combien de temps les planteurs passent à diverses activités, les principaux facteurs qui influencent leur productivité, et s'il étaient possible d'améliorer certaines parties des opérations. L'échantillonnage systématique des activités a servi à déterminer le temps productif et non productif. La discussion porte sur quelques facteurs affectant le rendement d'une opération de plantation.
