Abstract
The findings of recent studies from both eastern and western Canada have shown that the drying behaviour of subalpine fir (A. lasiocarpa) and balsam fir (A. balsamea) is similar, which allows common solutions to be applied based on research conducted on one species of fir or the other. This article summarizes previous research findings and good practices that can be adopted in the short term to improve the drying of fir.

Abstract
Recently, many forest companies, especially those located on the BC coast, have become interested in the possible danger that the runoff from log accumulations (log yards) may pose to the local flora and fauna and, ultimately, to humans. This info note attempts to put together practical information about how harmful runoff from log yards is created, how it can be prevented and give a brief overview of mitigation options. In creating this info note, a literature review was completed and a list of useful documents can be found near the end.

Abstract
Des travaux récents tant dans l’est que dans l’ouest du Canada ont montré que le comportement au séchage du sapin subalpin (A. lasiocarpa) et du sapin baumier (A. balsamea) est similaire, ce qui permet une application de solutions communes à partir de travaux effectués sur l’une ou l’autre variété de sapin. Le présent document se veut une revue sommaire de résultats de travaux antérieurs et de bonnes pratiques pouvant être adoptées à court terme pour améliorer le séchage de cette essence.
