Abstract
Harvest operations on soft soils can be particularly challenging in order to respect site and soil disturbance guidelines as well as operational requirements. To address the challenges of operating on soft soils, FPInnovations has worked on solutions designed to reduce disturbance on weak soils while minimizing implementation and investment costs by using machines already being used in the operation.

Abstract
FERIC compared three harvesting systems (full-tree, tree-length, and cut-to length) on a clay site in northwestern Québec. None of the systems limited rutting to below the acceptable target level; however, cut-to-length harvesting (using a three-machine system) showed slightly better results than the other two systems.

Abstract
Les géosynthétiques de renforcement ont été évalués sur une route traversant une tourbière. Trois options ont été expérimentées : géogrille, géotextile non tissé renforcé et radier (arbres ébranchés déposés côte à côte). Après 1 an, les trois tronçons donnentt ds performances équivalentes. L'emploi des matériaux géosynthétiques était moins dispendieux que celui d'un radier lorsque les tiges utilisées généraient un profit supérieur à 3 $/m³. Les géosynthétiques sont faciles à mettre en place, ne nécessitent pas d'équipements additionnels pour l'installation et évitent la perte de fibre.

Abstract
Geosynthetic reinforcement was evaluated in a road that crossed a muskeg bog. Three options were tested: geogrid, reinforced non-woven geotextile, and corduroy (delimed trees laid side by side). After 1 year, the three road segments provided similar performance. Geosynthetics were less expensive than corduroy if the stems used in the latter approach could have generated a net profit of greater than $/m3. Geosynnthetics are easy to install, require no additional equipment during the installation, and avoid fiber loss.

Abstract
Une comparaison de trois systèmes de récolte (arbres entiers, troncs entiers et bois tronçonnés) a été réalisé sur un site argileux du nord-ouest du Québec. Aucun des systèmes n'a rencontré l'objectif fixé de limitation de l'orniérage; toutefois, le mode de récolte par bois tronçonnés (système à trois machines) montrait un léger avantage sur les deux autres systèmes.

Sols cohérents
Abstract
Le compactage de sols cohérents pour des routes forestières est relativement peu coûteux (500 à 1000 $/km) et se révèle rentable, mais il n'est pas très répandu dans l'industrie forestière. La densité accrue du sol réduit le tassement, augmente la résistance, améliore la capacité portante, limite les changements volumétriques et peut diminuer les coûts de construction et d'entretien. Ces économies couvrent souvent le coût du compactage. FERIC a étudié l'impact du compactage dans des opérations utilisant la méthode à fossé en V où la résistance à la pénétration a triplé et la méthode à surélévation sur tapis ligneux où la résistance à la pénétration a doublé.

Abstract
Compacting cohesive soils for forest roads is relatively inexpensive ($500 to $1000 per km) and cost-effective, yet compaction still isn't used extensively by the forest industry. Increased soil density reduces settlement, increases soil strength, improves bearing capacity, limits volume changes and often leads to lower construction and maintenance costs. These savings often cover the cost of compaction. FERIC recently studied the impact of soil compaction in two road construction techniques: V-ditch embankment (in which density increased by 8% and penetration resistance tripled) and the lift-over rootmat method (in which density increased little and penetration resistance doubled).

Abstract
FERIC assessed a cable skidder with a dual-drum winch and radio remote control in hardwood partial-cutting operations. Productivity increased by up to 32% depending on the technology used, and ground disturbance decreased by up to 40%. Trail occupancy and damage to residual trees also decreased (by up to 53% and 79%, respectively). Operators entered the machine significantly fewer times, thereby improving safety. Remote controls are cost-effective for any machine, but dual-drum winches are probably too costly to install on older machines.
