FPInnovations, the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy are pleased to present the Woody Debris Management Workshop taking place in seven different locations in British Columbia in May and June 2018.
The workshop will consist in an introduction to practical methods for handling and harvesting logging residuals to achieve higher utilization and implement low-carbon solutions.
Through a series of presentations, these workshops will support the extraction of residual fibre in British Columbia and, in return, reduce the amount of open-air burning of harvest residues.

Workshop participants will learn about the following topics:
