Abstract
In 1997, FERIC studied a partial cutting operation in the Interior Cedar-Hemlock biogeoclimate zone, on a site west of Kitwanga, B.C. The operation used a Skylead C40 16000 skidder-mounted yarder and Mini-Maki II radio-controlled carriage in a standing skyline configuration and in single-and multi-span applications. The study provided information on productivity and costs for the harvesting system, impact on soil surface conditions, and damage to the residual stand. Productivity functions were derived to predict yarding productivity and costs over a range of operation conditions.

Breakage and other forms of stem damage are often commonplace during felling, harvesting, skidding and delimbing. However, you don't have to take it for granted: why not reduce your losses and increase your income instead? (article in French)

Les bris et autres formes de dommages aux tiges sont souvent monnaie courante lors des opérations d’abattage, de débardage et d’ébranchage. Cependant, vous n’avez pas à les prendre pour acquis : pourquoi ne pas plutôt réduire vos pertes et augmenter vos revenus?

Abstract
Between the years 1986 and 2000, the reforestation strategy of the of the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune and Parks allowed the planting of some 180 million seedlings annually. Many of these plantations are now at the age where they can be age where they are suitable for a first commercial thinning.
Abstract
Entre les années 1986 et 2000, la stratégie de reboisement du ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs a permis de mettre en terre quelque 180 millions de plants annuellement. Plusieurs de ces plantations sont maintenant rendues à l’âge où elles peuvent se prêter à une première éclaircie commerciale.

Abstract
FERIC studied manual and mechanized felling operations with extraction by cable skidder within the Turkey Lakes Watershed in central Ontario. The study compared manual and mechanized clearcutting and partial-cutting operations (shelterwood and selection cuts) and found that felling and extraction productivities were greatest in clearcutting. However, site disturbance depended as much on how the operation was conducted as on the harvesting system used. From the perspective of riparian-zone management, each cut intensity and harvest system offers different advantages with respect to slash distribution and mineral-soil exposure, and their respective merits must be considered in light of the silvicultural objectives.
