Abstract
In 1997, FERIC, Alberta Research Council (ARC), Ainsworth Lumber Inc., and Daishowa-Marubeni International Ltd. conducted a study to determine the productivities and costs of various methods of managing logging debris in aspen cutblocks. Conventional roadside processing, two in-block processing treatments (intermediate skid and at-the-stump processing), and roadside processing with subsequent dispersal of slash into the block were assessed.

Abstract
Le programme Valeur au bois a été mis sur pied en mai 2002 afin de fournir des solutions technologiques aux fabricants de produits du bois à valeur ajoutée de partout au pays. Le volet Recherche du programme a permis de réunir des chercheurs de Forintek Canada Corp., ainsi que de l’Université de la Colombie-Britannique, de l’Université Laval, de l’Université de Toronto et de l’Université du Nouveau-Brunswick pour examiner les sujets de recherche essentiels au succès à court terme et à long terme de l’industrie. Le volet Transfert de la technologie a contribué à la création d’un réseau pancanadien de spécialistes dans la transformation du bois qui jouent un double rôle. En effet, ils se chargent de diffuser les résultats de recherche et ils aident l’industrie à prendre des décisions d’ordre opérationnel, technique et stratégique. Comme le moment du renouvellement du programme Valeur au bois approche, le SCF a confié à Forintek le mandat de produire une carte routière pour l’industrie canadienne des produits du bois à valeur ajoutée qui permettra d’atteindre quatre grands objectifs :
Déterminer les priorités et les besoins en technologie des sous-secteurs de l’industrie du bois à valeur ajoutée pour les cinq à dix prochaines années;
Trouver des moyens appropriés pour transférer les résultats des recherches à l’industrie;
Définir les objectifs et les mesures de succès des activités de recherche et de transfert de la technologie;
Formuler des recommandations et dresser un plan d’action pour favoriser l’expansion de l’industrie du bois à valeur ajoutée. La carte routière portait sur des domaines de recherche ciblés prenant en considération que les produits à valeur ajoutée se trouvent dans le vaste contexte des chaînes de valeur industrielles. Des questions telles que l’approvisionnement en matériaux, la conception et la mise au point de produits, la technologie et la fabrication, les renseignements sur les marchés et l’accès à ceux-ci, les compétences et la formation, ainsi que de nombreux autres sujets ont été examinées. Six sous-secteurs de l’industrie des produits d’apparence ont été ciblés dans la carte routière : les portes et fenêtres, les revêtements de sol, les meubles de maison, les meubles de bureau, les armoires et comptoirs de cuisine, ainsi que les menuiseries préfabriquées et les menuiseries architecturales. Les produits du bois d’ingénierie et les pièces de charpentes préfabriquées entraient dans la catégorie des produits structuraux. L’information recueillie pour constituer la carte routière a été fournie par plus de cent spécialistes et représentants de l’industrie, surtout dans le cadre d’interviews en personne. Des rencontres individuelles ont été organisées avec des acteurs clés de l’industrie afin : a) de bien comprendre les tendances et les dynamiques intrinsèques qui animent chaque secteur; b) de définir les besoins en recherche et les priorités de l’industrie. Des représentants des partenaires du milieu universitaire ont été invités à passer en revue le résumé des questions issues de la consultation de l’industrie et ont participé à une discussion en table ronde en vue de dégager et d’évaluer des stratégies pour satisfaire les besoins de l’industrie. Il ressort des consultations de l’industrie que le secteur des produits du bois d’apparence et des pièces de charpentes doit faire l’objet d’innovation pour être en mesure de réagir à un certain nombre d’éléments moteurs clés.

Abstract
As of the beginning of 1990, there were a number of commercial models of chain flail delimber debarkers available in North America, and several prototypes were either operational or under development. Preliminary results are presented of FERIC studies on the productivity and performance of two commercial chain flail delimber-debarkers. The units studies were the Forest Pro Model 23, and the Peterson-Pacific DDC 5000.

Abstract
This summary report presents the main findings of a study of systems for the production of aspen veneer logs in northern Ontario. The case studies, which took place in 2001 and 2002, covered four types of operations: in-woods chipping, satellite yards, roundwood merchandizing at roadside, and roundwood production at the stump. The advantages and disadvantages of each system for the production of veneer logs are given, along with production cost estimates for each system. A report presenting further productivity and quality data, and a detailed cost analysis (in an Excel spreadsheet) are available to FERIC members and partners on request.

Abstract
Four-foot hard maple bolts, ranging in diameter from 6 to 16 inches, were produced from pulp wood and sawlogs. The bolts were live-sawn into 1-inch boards to identify the coordinates of each board defect in order to mathematically reconstruct each bolt for simulated sawing. The optimum bolt values were obtained by "computer sawing" the bolt models several times into dimension stock, squares or pallet stock using three sawing patterns; live, around and cant sawing. In the simulated sawing of the actual and theoretical bolts, live sawing consistently resulted in the highest product value. The only exception was for bolts containing a large amount of discoloured wood. In these cases, around and cant sawing performed better than live sawing. In general, liver sawing produced the highest product value for the following reasons; the production of wider boards allows a greater resawing flexibility, fewer saw cuts with less kerf loss and the production of fewer slabs. In-plant studies were conducted to determine the effect of the sawing pattern on productivity. Live sawing increased productivity by 18% for small diameter bolts and up to 30% for larger diameter bolts over the other sawing patterns. While multi-pass systerms may be suitable for the larger, higher quality bolts, it is doubtful that such a system would be viable processing small diameter material down to 6 inches. In processing smaller diameter bolts, it is necessary to have a single-pass system with high productivity to offset the lower quality and value of this material.

Abstract
Though mechanized processing of logs at roadside is common practice elsewhere in Canada, it is a difficult activity to undertake in Coastal British Columbia because of steep slopes and large trees. In 1985, at the request of its member companies, FERIC investigated existing technology and in 1986 began to develop an attachment for a cable loader to process coastal logs. This report describes how the West coast processor was developed in cooperation with the Science Council of British Columbia, The National Research Council, Johnson Industries Limited, and members of the British Columbia Forest Industry.
