Abstract
This report presents a case study of the vulnerability to climate change of infrastructure on the Tum Tum Forest Service Road using the Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) protocol. This case study provided analysis of the risks and opportunities faced by the road, recommendations to mitigate the identified risks, and established a benchmark for future iterations of the process with resource roads.

Abstract
Developing and implementing adaptation practices that reduce the negative impacts and the vulnerability of resource road infrastructure to climate change needs to be a priority for resource road managers. The management of water across the forested landscape is expected to be a greater challenge in response to predicted climate changes in many regions of Canada. These changes in landscape water movement and seasonal timing could challenge existing resource road drainage infrastructure. This is the third Info Note in a series of five focused on the key issues of creating climate resilient resource roads.

Abstract
This report gives the results of a field test and demonstration of a modified pit burner when burning logyard waste. The modification included the introduction of high pressure air in the base of the pit burner. The addition of underfire air resulted in reduced smoke emissions relatives to the standard pit burner with only overfire air. Based on field test results, potential cost and production scenarios were estimated.

Abstract
This first year report contains a collection of integration methods, which forest products companies could implement in order to increase their effectiveness in today’s increasingly demanding global markets. These methods range from less sophisticated market transactions and informal agreements to more complex virtual and vertically integrated companies. Each integration method is described and examples from the forest products industry are provided, when available. Also, examples of integration scenarios are proposed for the second year of the project. These examples include modelling of informal agreements between sawmilling operations, clusters of sawmilling and value-added businesses, and vertical integration of sawmilling and remanufacturing operations. In the second year, these examples could be used in various studies to compare different integration methods and to assess the feasibility of a state of the art flexible and integrated sawmilling operation. The report concludes with a series of comments and recommendations about the implementation of these integration methods by forest products companies. One important condition is the appropriate communication within and between companies. Another condition addresses the delicate balance that companies have to achieve between adopting flexible and integrated operations and maintain a dependable customer base. The Appendix includes a set of PowerPoint slides and notes presented by the author at the first “Trees to Dollars” workshop, organized in November 2005 by Forintek in Grande Prairie, AB.

Abstract
This handbook is a compilation of erosion and sediment control practices aimed at aiding the forest industry, and includes background information to support such practices. These practices are often termed Best Management Practices (BMPs). The handbook will offer guidance for erosion prevention and sediment containment along forest roads where the driving forces are rain and moving water; erosion from wind and mass wasting processes will not be covered.

Abstract
Firebrand transport is a key mechanism for fire spread. Fire and fuels managers apply fuel treatments in the wildland–urban interface based on our best understanding of firebrand transport and spot fire growth. Observations and data collected during this experimental fire can lend to innovations in firebrand transport data collection methods and fuel treatment maintenance practices.

Abstract
This guide is intended as a reference for use during the eld data collection phase of the provincial process in assessing sh passage at culverted sites.1 It is an important part of the provincial assessment process which uses a holistic watershed approach. The eld data can be used as part of the development of a sh passage restoration plan2 or as part of regular road maintenance inspections.
