Abstract
This article is the fourth in a series of four articles presenting different citizen science projects carried out at the Canadian Forest Service. The butternut tree is seriously threatened by an aggressive pathogen and has been protected since 2005 by the Canadian Species at Risk Act. Citizens have helped researchers from the Canadian Forest Service of Natural Resources Canada to locate the butternut in Quebec and to monitor its health, which is an essential collaboration to optimize ongoing research.
Abstract
Cet article est le quatrième d’une série de quatre articles présentant différents projets de science citoyenne réalisés au Service canadien des forêts. Étant sérieusement menacé par un agent pathogène agressif, le noyer cendré est protégé depuis 2005 par la Loi canadienne sur les espèces en péril. Des citoyens ont mis la main à la pâte pour aider les chercheurs du Service canadien des forêts de Ressources naturelles Canada à le localiser sur le territoire du Québec et à assurer un suivi de son état de santé, ce qui constitue une collaboration essentielle afin d’optimiser les recherches en cours.

Abstract
In an effort to improve the flotation and mobility of off-road vehicles on the low strength soils which underlie large portions of the forest area throughout Canada, FERIC initiated a search for a dependable high-flotation tire which could be used to improve the performance of existing logging machines. This report describes the four-year testing and development program, and the performance of skidders equipped with wide, high flotation tires on both soft and on steep terrain. The advantages and disadvantages of these tires are summarized.
