Abstract
Computer technology continues to evolve at blinding speed. Today’s mobile technology enables what used to be recorded on desktop computers or on paper just a few years ago. Now, data can be viewed, shared and recorded on devices such as smart phones or other mobile devices used within harvesting operations. In addition, telecommunications capabilities in Canada have significantly improved, providing connectivity where it was not available in the past, although there are still large areas where forestry operates with limited cellular communication services. In order to better orient its technology development strategies, FPInnovations has invited a number of its members throughout Canada to take an on-line survey to obtain information on the current and future state of technology platforms, data collections mechanisms and communications being used or soon-to-be used in forestry field operations. This information will help FPI understand the current state of technology and the direction its members are heading to with respect to mobile computing needs.

Abstract
La technologie informatique continue à évoluer à une vitesse fulgurante. La technologie actuelle permet de saisir des informations qui étaient, il y a quelques années à peine, enregistrées dans des ordinateurs de bureau ou consignées sur papier. Aujourd’hui, les données peuvent être visualisées, partagées et enregistrées sur des appareils tels que des téléphones intelligents ou sur d’autres appareils mobiles utilisés dans le cadre des opérations forestières. Les télécommunications dans notre vaste pays se sont aussi considérablement améliorées, fournissant une connectivité dans des endroits qui en étaient auparavant dépourvus, même s’il reste encore de grandes régions où les opérations en forêt se déroulent avec des services limités de communications. Dans le but de mieux orienter ses stratégies de développement en matière de technologie, FPInnovations a invité plusieurs de ses membres partout au Canada à répondre à un sondage en ligne afin de recueillir des renseignements relatifs à l’état actuel et futur des plateformes technologiques, aux mécanismes de collecte des données et aux communications qui sont utilisées actuellement ou qui le seront prochainement dans les opérations forestières sur le terrain. Ces renseignements nous aideront à comprendre l’état actuel des technologies ainsi que les avenues vers lesquelles nos membres se dirigent en ce qui touche les besoins d’informatique mobile. Les résultats de l’étude seront pour leur part utilisés pour guider notre programme de recherche. Ils seront partagés avec les participants.

Abstract
A Roadmap for the Canadian Value Added Wood Products Industry and the Prefabricated Building Systems Industry was completed in 2007 under the Value to Wood Program. Current information is needed to confirm actual industry’s needs for innovation. The project consisted in conducting a Value Added Sector Assessment Survey to update the previous Roadmap. Information and data were essentially collected through the use of an online interactive survey prepared by the FPInnovations’ economics and markets group. A total of 2,086 industry and research people were contacted to complete the questionnaire. Of that total, 256 respondents returned questionnaires which were kept for analysis. The study has reviewed the research issues and needs raised by industry respondents. These issues and needs were analyzed and sorted in different themes and then compared to the findings of the 2007 roadmap. The conclusions of the study are notably:
The driving forces of innovation identified in 2007 are still relevant and valid today o Global competition and consumers needs are the main driving forces leading businesses to seek greater manufacturing and cost efficiencies.
The priorities and research needs identified in the 2007 Roadmap are still pertinent today o There is a need to increase product development capacities through better design, better finishing, better quality, etc. o Provide relevant and up to date market intelligence information to support the value added sectors.

Abstract
FPInnovations partnered with Canfor Vanderhoof and Doug Brophy Contracting Ltd. to install a high-density lodgepole pine direct seeding trial in the spring and fall of 2014. Two blocks were seeded at rates of 20 000 and 40 000 seeds/ha using the Bracke s35.a seeder mounted on a disc trencher. At the end of the 2015 growing season, total stocking was 6 630 and 5 170 st/ha respectively, of which 46% and 57% came from direct seeding. Further natural ingress and delayed germination are expected to increase stocking to target levels.

Abstract
Maintaining acceptable machine availability and repair costs is a challenge for contractor operations where sophisticated repair support systems may not exist. This study defines the present state-of-the-art in contractor equipment maintenance through on_site interviews with a sample of contractors in Eastern Canada. Differences from traditional company maintenance operations were noted and recommendations to improve maintenance strategies have been made.
