Abstract
Forests make up nearly 35 per cent – 347 million hectares – of Canadian land. For the forest sector, that’s a lot of inventory to manage and monitor. To run any successful business, inventory needs to be monitored. That’s why researchers at the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre (CWFC) are enhancing current inventory systems to improve how forest managers, provincial governments, and other communities across Canada manage forests.

Abstract
Le Canada compte 347 millions d’hectares de forêt, ce qui correspond à près de 35 % de sa super cie. C’est beaucoup de stocks à gérer et surveiller pour le secteur forestier. Pour gérer avec succès une exploitation, une surveillance des stocks s’impose. C’est la raison pour laquelle les chercheurs du Centre canadien sur la bre de bois (CCFB) s’emploient à améliorer les systèmes d’inventaire actuels de manière à améliorer la façon dont les aménagistes forestiers, les gouvernements provinciaux et d’autres collectivités du Canada gèrent les forêts.

Abstract
The FastTRAC project brought together scientists, foresters and economists from the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre, Laval University, FPInnovations, the Government of Québec, J.D. Irving, and the New Brunswick Tree Improvement Council. They demonstrated tree genomic-assisted selection at the operational scale and highlighted the economic benefits of FastTRAC technology.

Abstract
Des chercheurs primés du Centre canadien sur la bre de bois du Service canadien des forêts (CCFB/SCF) mènent cette recherche génomique dans le cadre d’un projet appelé FastTRAC (Fast Tests for Rating and Amelioration of Conifers / Tests rapides pour l’amélioration des conifères). Ces travaux transforment les programmes traditionnels d’amélioration génétique des arbres, ils améliorent la sélection des arbres et ils dotent les producteurs de semences de recherches et d’outils essentiels.

Abstract
Compared to slower growing trees like spruces, hybrid poplars and selected aspens grown in these plantations are ready for harvest in less than 20 years. The technology development specialists established this a mixed wood crop to evaluate how short-rotation or fast-growing tree crops (123 to 17 years to maturity) could sustain and expand the bioenergy sector. High-yield crops like these are crucial for the sector, which relies on woody biomass to produce clean energy.

Abstract
In recent years, when high-resolution and low-altitude imaging of forests is needed for surveillance, inventorying or continuous monitoring, the tool of choice is an unmanned aerial system (UAS), commonly known as a drone. Especially useful are vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) systems, which can take off and land vertically, and which can provide detailed information in confined or hard-to-reach areas. However, when it comes to forest operational needs, one question is frequently asked: Do the added advantages of high-end systems justify their cost ($60,000), or do low-end systems ($6,000 plus a tablet) provide similar or acceptable output?
Abstract
Ces dernières années, lorsqu'une imagerie haute résolution et à basse altitude des forêts est nécessaire pour la surveillance, l'inventaire ou le suivi continu, l'outil de choix est un système aérien sans pilote (UAS), communément appelé drone. Les systèmes à décollage et atterrissage verticaux (VTOL), qui peuvent décoller et atterrir verticalement et fournir des informations détaillées dans des zones confinées ou difficiles d'accès, sont particulièrement utiles. Toutefois, lorsqu'il s'agit des besoins opérationnels des forêts, une question revient fréquemment : Les avantages supplémentaires des systèmes haut de gamme justifient-ils leur coût (60 000 $), ou les systèmes bas de gamme (6 000 $ plus une tablette) fournissent-ils un rendement similaire ou acceptable ?

Abstract
How can we increase the value extracted from our wood resources to meet the growing global demand for high-value for high-value forest products? What characterizes Canadian value-added wood? How can the Canadian forest industry differentiate itself? These are the questions that Natural Resources Canada's Canadian Wood Fibre Centre (CWFC) and FPInnovations are asking, which led them to better understand the relationship between the external characteristics of the tree and the properties of the wood and the internal properties of wood fibre. Among other things, they are seeking to understand the interdependence between silviculture, tree physiology and wood quality, and to integrate this notion of quality into quality in forest inventories.
Abstract
Comment accroitre la valeur extraite de nos ressources ligneuses afin de répondre à une demande mondiale croissante pour des produits forestiers de grande valeur? Qu’est-ce qui caractérise le bois canadien à valeur ajoutée? Comment l’industrie forestière canadienne peut-elle se démarquer? Autant de questions que se posent les chercheurs du Centre canadien sur la fibre de bois (CCFB) de Ressources naturelles Canada et de FPInnovations et qui les ont poussés à mieux comprendre les relations entre les caractéristiques externes de l’arbre et les propriétés internes de la fibre de bois. Ils cherchent, entre autres, à saisir les liens d’interdépendance entre la sylviculture, la physiologie des arbres et la qualité du bois ainsi qu’à intégrer cette notion de qualité aux inventaires forestiers.
