Abstract
Computer technology continues to evolve at blinding speed. Today’s mobile technology enables what used to be recorded on desktop computers or on paper just a few years ago. Now, data can be viewed, shared and recorded on devices such as smart phones or other mobile devices used within harvesting operations. In addition, telecommunications capabilities in Canada have significantly improved, providing connectivity where it was not available in the past, although there are still large areas where forestry operates with limited cellular communication services. In order to better orient its technology development strategies, FPInnovations has invited a number of its members throughout Canada to take an on-line survey to obtain information on the current and future state of technology platforms, data collections mechanisms and communications being used or soon-to-be used in forestry field operations. This information will help FPI understand the current state of technology and the direction its members are heading to with respect to mobile computing needs.

Abstract
La technologie informatique continue à évoluer à une vitesse fulgurante. La technologie actuelle permet de saisir des informations qui étaient, il y a quelques années à peine, enregistrées dans des ordinateurs de bureau ou consignées sur papier. Aujourd’hui, les données peuvent être visualisées, partagées et enregistrées sur des appareils tels que des téléphones intelligents ou sur d’autres appareils mobiles utilisés dans le cadre des opérations forestières. Les télécommunications dans notre vaste pays se sont aussi considérablement améliorées, fournissant une connectivité dans des endroits qui en étaient auparavant dépourvus, même s’il reste encore de grandes régions où les opérations en forêt se déroulent avec des services limités de communications. Dans le but de mieux orienter ses stratégies de développement en matière de technologie, FPInnovations a invité plusieurs de ses membres partout au Canada à répondre à un sondage en ligne afin de recueillir des renseignements relatifs à l’état actuel et futur des plateformes technologiques, aux mécanismes de collecte des données et aux communications qui sont utilisées actuellement ou qui le seront prochainement dans les opérations forestières sur le terrain. Ces renseignements nous aideront à comprendre l’état actuel des technologies ainsi que les avenues vers lesquelles nos membres se dirigent en ce qui touche les besoins d’informatique mobile. Les résultats de l’étude seront pour leur part utilisés pour guider notre programme de recherche. Ils seront partagés avec les participants.

Abstract
FPInnovations conducted a ground-based ash and biosolids spreading trial in Quebec. One treatment used a horizontal spinner as a spreading method and the other treatment used a line-dumping method. The trial showed that deflector plates helped to increase spreading uniformity. The trial results were also used to create a costing model that calculates productivity and the costs of spreading ash or biosolids using the two application methods.

Abstract
Utilizing forest harvest residue is an issue of growing urgency in the British Columbia forest industry, In B.C., forest residues at roadside have traditionally been burned to mitigate fire hazard or, occasionally, they have been left to rot. With an increasing demand for energy and concern over climate change and air quality, burning may no longer be the most desirable practice for dealing with residues. Further, there is an increasing demand for harvest residues by both primary and secondary users to fuel the growing bioeconomy in B.C.

Abstract
The general objective of this guide is to assess the economic benefits of BMPs on feedstock quality and process improvement for the bioenergy sector. This guide is based on the publication Biomass Management: Effective Management Techniques for Biomass Piles to Secure Access to Quality Feedstock (Technical Report no. 8 - January 2017), a summary of published literature focusing on characteristics and management of comminuted (hogged) and roundwood forest biomass, Previous studies undertaken and some of the practical experience of FPInnovations staff have been incorporated.

Abstract
The Bulkley TSA biomass inventory was based on 50-year harvest and road network plans for Crown land provided by the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO). The biomass yield per hectare predicted for the Bulkley TSA is 25.2 oven-dried tonnes per hectare (odt/ha) from harvest residues. Over the next 50 years a total of 3.48 million odt of available biomass are predicted to be generated by harvest in the Bulkley TSA, or approximately 70,000 odt/yr. Of this, approximately 231,000 odt in total, or 4,600 odt/yr, is expected to be available at the economic price of $60 per oven-dried tonne.
