Enhanced prediction of soil disturbance in forest harvest operations

Research at FP Innovations  furthers the understanding and protection of forest soils through activities focused on real-time tracking of harvest machines and related machine-soil interactions. These activities contribute to developing a soil trafficability model, led by researchers at the Forest Watershed Research Centre, Faculty of Forestry and Env. Mgt.,  University of New Brunswick. This is done in UNB partnership with J.D. Irving Ltd. and FP Innovations, with CRD support from NSERC.
