Understanding the Operational Challenges of Operating Equipment in a Diverse Range of Forest Soil Conditions in Alberta

The CIF Rocky Mountain Section is hosting a spring technical session!

The CIF RMS Section AGM and Quiz Bowl will be hosted in conjunction with the technical session.

The Technical Session will focus on the increasing array of challenges forestry encounters in choosing and operating equipment across an increasingly diverse range of soils, terrain, and climatic conditions. The emphasis will be on how soils limit machine productivity and operability and overcoming the soil limitation. The presentations by experts from academia, industry and government will allow the forestry industry at all levels to better understand the operational challenges encountered in day-to-day operations and planning.
