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
Les chercheurs suggèrent une récolte partielle; dans ce cas, l`éclaircissage des forêts par tranche de 20 ans pendant les périodes de perturbation naturelle des ravageurs. Le résultat est un moyen durable et économique de récolter des arbres et de maintenir des forêts résilientes.

Abstract
Pacific Forest Products Limited began commercially thinning Douglas-fir dominated second-growth forest on southeastern Vancouver Island with mechanized shortwood systems in 1992. In the summer of 1994, FERIC monitored a thinning operation near Cowichan Lake to determine productivities, costs and impacts to sites and residual stands. The thinning treatment was carried out with a Timberjack 1270 harvester and a Timberjack 910 forwarder.

Abstract
The researchers suggest partial harvesting - in this case, thinning forests in 20-year increments during the natural pest disturbance periods. The result is a cost-effective and sustainable way to harvest trees and maintain resilient forests.

Abstract
FERIC and the Faculty of Forestry of the University of British Columbia (UBC) developed a computer model, for use at the cutblock level, to predict the net revenue of coastal second-growth stands that are to be clear-cut or partial cut. Cruise data and company sort descriptions are used to predict volume by sort and timber value. Productivity and cost data from within the model, or as defined by the user, determine the total harvesting costs for an operation. Net revenue is obtained by subtracting the harvesting cost from the timber value. At two harvesting sites near Powell River, B.C., the predicted total volumes and timber values were within 5% and 3% of scaled volumes and actual values, respectively.

Abstract
Between December 1993 and March 1994, FERIC monitored hand-falling and skyline-yarding operations in a 9.6-ha second-growth stand of Douglas-fir, western hemlock, and western redcedar in Coastal British Columbia. The study measured falling and skyline yarding productivities, identified factors influencing productivity, recorded extracted volumes by timber grades, and conducted post-harvest site assessments. Simple productivity prediction models were developed for falling only, falling and processing, and skyline yarding.

Abstract
In the winter and spring of 1994, FERIC monitored a loader-forwarding operation extracting hand- and machine-felled timber from second-growth stands on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. FERIC measured worker and machine productivities, identified factors that influenced harvesting performance, and conducted post-harvest site assessments.

Abstract
Since 1991, FERIC has collected information on clearcut harvesting of coastal second-growth forests in British Columbia. This report summarizes the data gathered during the project, and presents basic productivity prediction models for a number of different harvesting systems. Information is also presented on machine operating costs, stem breakage during harvesting, site disturbance, and soil compaction.
