Summary

In 1998, forest fires in central Alberta caused extensive damage for forest land. The local forest industry and the Alberta Land and Forest Service (ALFS) were anxious to salvage as much burned timber as possible. The ALFS contracted FERIC to organize a workshop on salvaging and processing burned timber, and to conduct and document operational case studies on the recovery and utilization of burned timber. This report summarizes the techniques and strategies that were observed during the case studies to harvest and process burned timber, as well as the results of charcoal and moisture content studies performed on the fire-damaged timber.
