Abstract
Au Canada, on prévoit que les changements climatiques auront une incidence considérable sur l'industrie forestière. Les routes d'accès sont particulièrement vulnérables aux effets immédiats et à court terme des changements climatiques. Des stratégies d'adaptation pour les routes d'accès et les infrastructures doivent être élaborées et leur mise en œuvre doit commencer, afin de s'assurer que les infrastructures routières nécessaires pour accéder à la forêt soient maintenues et résistent aux effets des changements climatiques. Ce rapport présente les risques et la vulnérabilité des routes d'accès aux changements climatiques, ainsi que des méthodes et pratiques recommandées pour s'y adapter.

Abstract
The changes to climatic conditions in Canada are anticipated to have a significant impact on the Canadian forest industry. Resource roads are considered particularly vulnerable to the immediate and short-term impacts of climate change. Adaptation strategies for resource roads and infrastructure must be developed and implementation initiated to ensure that the road infrastructure required for forest access is maintained and made resilient to climatic impacts. This report presents the risks and vulnerabilities of resource roads to climate change and suggested adaptation methods and practices.

Abstract
FLNRO, with technical assistance from the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and FPInnovations, conducted a case study of the vulnerability to climate change of infrastructure on the 70 km-long in-SHUCK-ch forest service road. The workshop participants followed a process established by the Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC). This case study provided both meaningful analysis of the risks and opportunities faced by the in-SHUCK-ch FSR corridor and the communities it provides access to, and establishes a benchmark for future iterations of the process with resource roads. A series of recommendations are made that arise from the PIEVC analysis. These recommendations included the need to streamline and focus the PIEVC process specifically for resource roads, capacity building actions by road managers and maintainers, a review of emergency preparedness plans for the communities accessed by the FSR, actions to safeguard FSR infrastructure and residential development on lakeshore debris fans, a general review and inspection of drainage structures, actions to review and improve the resiliency of stream crossing structures and, finally, a recommendation to review the scope and size of the road maintenance program.

Les chercheurs du Service canadien des forêts travaillent à estimer la productivité forestière à différentes échelles spatiales. C’est à l’échelle de l’arbre et du peuplement que s’apprécient le mieux les variations dans la productivité.

Abstract
How will the boreal forest respond to climate change? What will be the effect of increased carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration and increased temperatures ) and increased temperatures on tree growth? growth of trees? Answering these questions is a complex exercise. Over the years, researchers from the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) researchers have provided some answers, particularly for black and white spruce. and white spruce.
Abstract
Comment la forêt boréale réagira-t-elle face au changement climatique? Quel sera l’effet d’une plus grande concentration en gaz carbonique (CO2) et d’une augmentation des températures sur la croissance des arbres? Répondre à ces interrogations constitue un exercice complexe. Au fil des ans, des chercheurs du Service canadien des forêts (SCF) ont apporté des éléments de réponse, notamment pour l’épinette noire et l’épinette blanche.

Abstract
It is well known that the forest biomass used to supply the energy sector must meet the quality standards of energy production facilities. These standards relate to moisture content (TH), particle size, fine particle content and degree of contamination. Customers have their own requirements, which sometimes differ from each other, and the supplier must meet them. The development of a payment system based on quality criteria and energy value seems obvious, but not everything is the obvious, but it is not that simple.
Abstract
Devant l’enjeu des changements climatiques, tous les secteurs d’activités sont appelés à faire leur part afin de diminuer les émissions de CO2. Il en est de même avec les activités en forêt. Les différents groupes de recherche en opérations forestières chez FPInnovations se sont penchés sur la question et proposent diverses options d’atténuation. Parmi celles-ci, on compte l’adoption de méthodes plus écoénergétiques de conduite de machinerie, l’utilisation de biocarburants et la réduction des résidus de coupe laissés en forêt. Mais comme on ne contrôle bien que ce qu’on mesure, ils ont tout d’abord mis au point des outils permettant de calculer les émissions de carbone issues des opérations forestières.
