Abstract
Le trieur Pulpwood Sorter de Simco/Ramic a fait l'objet d'essais dans le but de déterminer s'il était capable d'extraire des copeaux sans écorce destinés à la pâte, à partir de copeaux produits en forêt et contenant des quantités connues d'écorce et d'autres débris. Les essais portaient sur quatre types de copeaux: des copeaux de feuillus provenant d'arbres entiers, des copeaux de résineaux provenant de troncs entiers, des copeaux de résineux provenant d'arbres entiers et des copeaux de feuillus produits par une ébrancheuse-écorceuse-déchiqueteuse à fléaux. Les résultats des essais donnent les proportions de copeaux acceptés et de résidus combustibles en pourcentage de l'approvisionnement total à l'entrée, et le rapport estime également le coût de triage par tonne métrique verte.

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
Debris management at logging sites and handling facilities is of increasing concern due to the volume of accumulated material and the constrained options for disposal. In March 2014, B.C. Timber Sales (BCTS) provided a timber sale on Maurelle Island that produced a large quantity of detached bark which originated from a 132-ha harvest area. Harvesting was during March 2014, and the predominant source of bark was from 41 150 m3 of Douglas-fir which accounted for approximately half the harvested volume (88 050 m3 total harvest volume). The bark accumulated at both a log storage area and on a transport barge during loading and unloading. The bark was disposed of along two dead-end spur roads (Figure 1). One of the spur roads has a small S6 stream (non-fish bearing) crossing through it. The disposal of logging debris (bark) along spur roads had not been considered or tried before by the Strait of Georgia Business Area of BCTS. The bark for Douglas-fir accounts for 30% by volume, which is the highest overall volume of bark for all softwood species (on average bark accounts for 10 to 15%).

Abstract
The Mountain Alternative Silvicultural Systems (MASS) study is a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency project initiated both for silvicultural and social reasons. MacMillan Bloedel Limited, the Canadian Forest Service, and FERIC cooperated in the study, with participation by the University of Victoria and the University of British Columbia. Three alternative treatments representing a range of canopy removal levels - uniform shelterwood, green tree retention, and patch cutting - were implemented in the research area, located on the east coast of Vancouver Island. FERIC monitored the productivity and cost of the falling and forwarding operations, and measured site disturbance and coarse woody debris for each harvesting treatment. The results of FERIC's study are presented.

Abstract
The composition (density, moisture content, piece-size, volume and pile profile) of full-tree logging residues left at roadside after the delimbing and topping operations was measured for both black spruce and jack pine stands. The performance of a modified prototype logging residue processor (LPR) which reclaimed and comminuted this material was also tested. Costs for the processed material loaded into a van for future conversion into energy and also for reclaiming the forest growing site under the roadside piles by spreading the comminuted residues over the cutover have been given.

Abstract
This report discusses options for composting the fines component of residues produced at log sortyards, including composting the fines with a readily available and inexpensive nitrogen source like fish processing waste. Based on the B.C. Agricultural composting Handbook, FERIC calculated the sizing and capacity of a potential logyard fines composting facility. Costs associated with operating a composting site under various equipment ownership and utilization scenarios are presented.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) undertook a project for Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to study the transportation of hog fuel from source to consumption site. In particular, FERIC gathered information from companies engaged in the supply, transportation, or use of hog fuel through direct visits or questionnaires. This report presents the types and costs of the various modes of transportation used—specifically truck, rail, and barge—and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Abstract
Dans une perspective d'amélioration de qualité d'habitat pour la faune, la coupe rase avec les blocs résiduels représente une solution de rechange à la coupe rase de grande superficie, où les aires de coupe sont séparées par des bandes étroites de bois sur pied. En 1997, une étude comparant l'impact économique et l'utilisation pour la faune des deux scénarios de récolte a été entreprise conjointement par le ministère des Ressources naturelles, le ministère de l'Environnement et de la Faune, Produits forestiers Donohue Inc et FERIC. Le présent rapport décrit les résultats d'une analyse comparative des coûts de récolte selon les deux approches, montrant que l'approche avec blocs résiduels avait un coût annuel moyen supérieur d'environ 0,45 à 0,67 $/m3 sur un horizon de trente ans comparativement à l'approche avec séparateurs, présentement utilisée.
