Abstract
A commercial thinning study in mule deer winter range was performed in the interior of British Columbia. The commercial thinning was followed by a pre-commercial thinning operation to create a clumpy, multi-storied stand with gaps for regeneration. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) monitored the commercial thinning and pre-commercial thinning operations and determined the costs and productivities of these phases.

Abstract
A multi-agency trial was established to determine the impacts of commercial thinning on the growth, yield, and development of white spruce stands. The commercial thinning operation was completed using a Timberjack 1270 harvester and a Timberjack 1210B forwarder. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) monitored the harvesting phase, determined the operational cost and productivity of the harvester and forwarder, determined the residual tree damage, and evaluated the effectiveness of a brushing crew in increasing the productivity of the harvester in areas with high densities of non-merchantable trees.

Abstract
Le présent rapport fait la synthèse des travaux qui ont été réalisés à la demande du ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune du Québec (MRNFQ) dans le cadre d’une mise à jour de leurs modèles économiques en forêt feuillue. L’étude visait à comparer la productivité de l’abattage mécanisé dans une coupe jardinatoire (CJ) avec la productivité des mêmes équipements et des mêmes opérateurs selon des modalités de coupe de régénération (CR). Les travaux ont permis de générer deux régressions illustrant la productivité de l’abattage mécanisé en fonction du volume moyen par tige pour chaque type de coupe en forêt feuillue et mixte.

Abstract
This report summarizes work that was performed at the request of Quebec’s Ministère des Ressources Naturelles et de la Faune (MRNFQ) as part of updating their economic models for hardwood forest. The study compared the productivity of mechanized felling in a selection cut with the productivity of the same equipment and operators working in a regeneration cut. This comparison generated regression equations for the productivity of mechanized felling as a function of mean stem volume for each type of cut in hardwood and mixed forests.

Abstract
This report analyzes the costs associated with three direct-seeding systems used in Canada for the regeneration of boreal conifers and compares these costs with those of a container planting system. The study identifies component costs for each system to aid readers in choosing the most cost-effective system, and recommends future research and development directions to provide more economical direct-seeding systems.

Abstract
We surveyed fire behaviour experts and wildlife biologists to rank the importance of four factors that affect the costs and benefits of seven post-harvest debris treatments and to determine the overall costs of each treatment to the forest industry and Alberta’s government. The four factors are fire behaviour potential, wildlife suitability, regeneration capability, and treatment costs.

Abstract
Le rapport présente les résultats d'une étude portant sur la coupe avec protection des petites tiges marchandes (CPPTM) et la coupe avec protection de la régénération et des sols (CPRS), en contexte de récolte multitraitement. Au niveau de la CPPTM, le taux de protection des tiges se trouvant dans les classes de diamètre à protéger concorde avec les données observées dans le passé, soit un taux de protection d'environ 60%. La comparison entre la CPRS et la CPPTM dans un même type de peuplement a démontré une amélioration de la productivité de l'ordre de 14% en faveur de la CPPTM. Les considérations opérationnelles dans une récolte multitraitement sont notées.
