Abstract
Forest managers in western Canada are now treating old forest roads and harvested sites to mitigate environmental concerns. This Compendium has been developed to assist practitioners in western Canada in selecting and implementing restoration measures appropriate to their needs and conditions. Watershed restoration activities, techniques and research trials in western North America are described and contacts for further information are given. Additions to the Compendium will be made on an ongoing basis.

Abstract
The soil of factory yards, due to its multi-layer structure, is very similar to that of very similar to that of roads. However, its drainage is much more and surface contamination is problematic. The transport logistics are difficult, the speed of movement is reduced and the and the route of the vehicles is variable. All this has as consequences loss of equipment productivity, wood storage problems, high maintenance costs and even negative impacts on the quality of the processed wood. Negative impacts on the quality of the processed wood. Faced with this reality, a team of researchers from FPInnovations' Roads and Infrastructure Group infrastructure group of FPInnovations set out to find solutions.
Abstract
Le sol des cours d’usine, de par sa structure multicouche, ressemble beaucoup à celui des routes. Toutefois, son drainage est beaucoup plus complexe et la contamination de la surface est problématique. La logistique de transport y est difficile, la vitesse de déplacement est réduite et le trajet des véhicules est variable. Le tout a comme conséquences une perte de productivité des équipements, des problèmes d’entreposage du bois, des coûts élevés d’entretien et même des impacts négatifs sur la qualité du bois transformé. C’est devant cette réalité qu’une équipe de chercheurs du groupe Routes et infrastructures de FPInnovations a entrepris de trouver des solutions.

Abstract
With projected changes in temperature and precipitation patterns, practices that reduce the negative impacts and vulnerability of road infrastructure are becoming a priority for road managers. FPInnovations has been investigating practices that promote adaptation and resilience of road infrastructure to climate change. Here are some examples.
Abstract
En raison des modifications prévues aux régimes de température et de précipitation, les pratiques qui réduisent les effets négatifs et la vulnérabilité des infrastructures routières deviennent une priorité pour les gestionnaires de routes. FPInnovations s’est penché sur les pratiques qui favorisent l’adaptation et la résilience de ces infrastructures aux changements climatiques. En voici quelques exemples.

Abstract
The first recommendation for forest access road construction is to avoid wetlands as much as possible. This protects the natural state of the wetlands and avoids the challenges of low bearing soils during road construction. However, in many areas, wetlands are difficult to bypass due to their size. If an access road must cross them, its alignment must minimize the effects on hydrologic processes and ecological functions, while ensuring that the economic, operational and safety requirements of the road are met. Careful planning and best water management practices will achieve these goals. Because access road construction in wetlands is so complex, the information below is only a snapshot of what to consider.
Abstract
La première recommandation concernant la construction de routes d’accès en milieu forestier consiste à éviter le plus possible les milieux humides. Cela protège l’état naturel de ces derniers et évite les défis liés aux sols à faible portance lors de la construction de routes. Cependant, dans de nombreux endroits, il est difficile de contourner les milieux humides en raison de leur étendue. Si une route d’accès doit les traverser, son tracé doit minimiser les effets sur les processus hydrologiques et les fonctions écologiques, tout en assurant le respect des exigences économiques, opérationnelles et sécuritaires de la route. Une planification attentive et des pratiques de gestion de l’eau exemplaires permettront d’atteindre ces objectifs. La construction de routes d’accès en milieux humides étant très complexe, les informations ci-dessous ne représentent qu’un aperçu de ce qu’il faut considérer.
