As utilizing forest harvest residues is an issue of growing urgency in the British Columbia forest industry, FPInnnovations’ Fibre Supply group introduced in 2017 the guide: Best Management Practices for Integrated Harvest Operations in British Columbia. This year, to address the growing need to access information online, we are proud to introduce an online narrated presentation that summarizes the guide and highlights its main concepts.
`Viewing this presentation is the first step forest managers can take to address the issue of how to handle logging residues in a proactive manner`, explains Stuart Spencer, researcher in the Fibre Supply group. `The simple changes of practices outlined in the presentation can go a long way towards reducing costs and facilitating residue extraction. `
The presentation, available here, is meant for resource managers interested in further utilization of logging residuals. Topics covered include a description of residual piles and components, and outline best practices for both primary and secondary harvesters.
The guide Best Management Practices for Integrated Harvest Operations in British Columbia is available to view or download here.
