SFI collabore avec des femmes qui changent l’image des propriétaires forestiers

Les services de vulgarisation coopératifs de l’Université Clemson collaborent avec d’autres organismes et des entreprises de gestion des ressources naturelles appartenant à des femmes pour organiser des ateliers d’information à l’intention des femmes propriétaires forestières de Caroline du Sud.
Forests fight community health crises in the Chicago area

Les forêts aident à surmonter les crises de santé publique dans les environs de Chicago

Saviez-vous qu’aux États-Unis et au Canada, les enfants passent plus de temps à l’intérieur que toutes les générations précédentes? On étudie encore les effets à long terme du « trouble du déficit de nature » des enfants nord-américains, mais l’on sait d’ores et déjà que le temps passé dehors favorise le développement physique et mental.
High school students map the future of forests at MSU

Des élèves du niveau secondaire tracent l’avenir des forêts à l’Université d’État du Michigan

L’aménagement forestier durable est un outil important pour assurer la santé de la planète et la prospérité mondiale qui est notre objectif commun. Or, malgré le besoin énorme de futurs chefs de file de la foresterie durable, bien des jeunes souhaitant poursuivre des études dans le domaine rencontrent des obstacles difficiles à surmonter. Le Programme multiculturel d’apprentissage de l’Université d’État du Michigan cherche à changer cela.
How sustainable forestry can help the legacy of African American Landowners

La foresterie durable peut aider à perpétuer l’héritage des propriétaires terriens afro-américains

Alors que nous nous apprêtons à célébrer le Mois de l’histoire afro-américaine, il importe de souligner une partie moins connue de cette histoire – l’héritage de la propriété de forêts parmi la communauté noire, et les chefs de file qui travaillent à le préserver.
Smart! Cornell engages kids with nest box building workshops

L’Université Cornell rejoint les enfants avec des ateliers de construction de cabanes à oiseaux

Le Laboratoire d’ornithologie de l’Université Cornell est un chef de file mondial de l’étude, de l’appréciation et de la conservation des oiseaux. Mais les vastes possibilités éducatives qu’il offre ne sont pas réservées qu’aux seuls élèves des écoles réputées. Elles comprennent des programmes destinés aux jeunes, aux familles et aux collectivités locales et leur permettant de participer à des activités d’apprentissage pratique qui bénéficient aux oiseaux et à l’environnement.
Trees & Turkey: a bountiful partnership

Des arbres et des dindons : un partenariat fructueux

À l’Action de grâce, SFI et la Fédération nationale pour le dindon sauvage (en anglais : National Wild Turkey Federation, ou NWTF) des États-Unis ont rendu grâce pour une autre année de collaboration fructueuse dans la poursuite de buts communs : des forêts bien aménagées, la conservation de la faune, la protection des habitats et des possibilités de loisirs sur les terres publiques.

WASHINGTON SFI IMPLEMENTATION COMMITTEE

Promoting Safe and Environmentally Responsible Tethered Logging

Improving harvesting practices on steep slopes in the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West
Why this Project Matters
Harvesting timber on steep slopes poses safety and environmental challenges. Tethered harvesting, also known as cable-assist harvesting, uses cable-winch systems on machines like harvesters, feller bunchers, forwarders, loaders, and skidders to stabilize and assist equipment operations on steep slopes. The cable system allows the equipment to operate on slopes that would normally be considered unsafe for operators and equipment or damaging to soils. Research is needed to investigate the operational feasibility, worker safety considerations, environmental impact, and economic efficiency of tethered logging, which will improve harvesting practices in the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West.
How the Project Contributes to Sustainability Objectives
One of the key objectives of this study is to measure impacts of tethered logging on soil health. Good soil health is critical to prompt reforestation which in turn provides habitat for wildlife, slows the incursion of invasive plant species, and reduces the rate of surface water flowing to streams below. This study will help forest managers and regulators better understand the potential effects of tethered logging systems on ecosystem services including soil productivity, clean water, and riparian and terrestrial biodiversity. Sharing this knowledge will enable land managers and regulators to make informed, evidence-based decisions that will improve the sustainability of forest management operations.
SFI’s Contribution
The SFI Community Grant Program is supporting this project. The study will generate empirical data about the impacts of tethered logging systems on soil disturbance, sediment delivery to streams, operational costs, and worker safety. This data will be made widely available. This will help grow professional development for land managers, regulators, contractors, operators, and loggers by delivering information to help them make informed, site-specific decisions to ensure tethered logging represents a responsible, sustainable option that meets SFI standards.
How this Project Builds SFI Community Engagement
A critical step in this project will be communicating the results of this study, along with findings from similar research locations across the region, to timber companies, land managers, representatives from the forestry industry, small landowners, regulators, educators, environmentalist organizations, and natural resource professionals including foresters, biologists, geologists, and silviculturists. The Washington State SFI Implementation Committee, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, and Oregon State University will share findings through conferences, online newsletters, and training materials, which will be shared with SFI Implementation Committees in California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Alberta, and British Columbia.

Washington State SFI Implementation Committee
SFI responds to local needs and issues across the United States and Canada through 34 SFI Implementation Committees at the state, provincial, and regional level. This unique grassroots network involves private landowners, independent loggers, forestry professionals, Indigenous people, local government agencies, academics, scientists, and conservationists. SFI Implementation Committees promote the SFI Forest Management Standard as a means to broaden the practice of responsible forestry and achieve progress on the ground. They offer a forum to provide information or answer questions about local forestry operations, and most have a process to respond to questions or concerns about forestry practices on SFI-certified lands.
