Abstract
This report analyzes the economic worth of harvesting and hauling jack pine full trees to a central processing plant to recover conventional forest products at the same time as branches and tops for energy. The report summarizes results of winter and summer field tests of cut-and- skid and feller-forwarder harvesting methods. Results indicate that energy biomass recovered may be attractive where hauling occurs over private roads and oversized loads are allowed. Some scenarios are positive even when energy values are zero due to the high productivity of centralized equipment.

Abstract
A forestry operation in northern Alberta constructs its temporary access roads with native, fine-grained materials and uses these roads during both frozen and unfrozen conditions. The log hauling fleet associated with this operation utilizes central tire inflation systems to reduce road damage and improve mobility. This first of two reports describes an evaluation of the design and construction of temporary access roads trafficked in the same year that they were constructed; quantifies grading maintenance savings resulting from the use of road surface compaction and optimized tire inflation pressures; and discusses the validation of a USDA Forest Service rutting model and its potential for use in other applications.

Abstract
A forestry operation in northern Alberta constructs its temporary access roads with native, fine-grained materials and uses these roads during both frozen and unfrozen conditions. The log hauling fleet associated with this operation utilizes central tire inflation systems to reduce road damage and improve mobility. This second of three reports describes an evaluation of the design and construction of temporary access roads trafficked one year after construction; quantifies grading maintenance savings resulting from the use of road seasoning and optimized tire inflation pressures; and discusses the validation of a USDA Forest Service rutting model and its potential for use in other applications.
