Key findings of EFFORTE project

  1. 1. Jori Uusitalo EFFORTE Business Forum Key Findings Helsinki 19.6.2019
  2. 2. EFFORTE targets at efficiency and sustainability 2 26.6.2019 • Coordination by Luke • 23 partners from five countries – Finland (6) – Sweden (8) – France (6) – UK (2) – Switzerland(1) • 5 research institutes • 13 large industry companies • 4 SMEs Duration 2016-2019 Total budget of 4.15 M€ out of which 2.23 M€ from Horizon 2020 1) Soil mechanics and trafficability 2) Efficient silviculture a) Increasing forest growth b) Efficient silvicultural operations 3) Big data –applications
  3. 3. Consortium Finland • Luke (coordinator) • Oy Arbonaut Ltd • Metsägroup Oyj • UPM-Kymmene Oyj • Stora Enso Oyj • Metsäteho Oy Sweden • Skogforsk • SLU • SCA Skog AB • Holmen aktiebolag • Sveaskog Förvaltning AB • Södra skogägarna • Stora Enso Skog AB • Creative Optimization France • FCBA • Forets et Bois de l’Est (FBE) • Office National des Forets (ONF) • sarl Ste d’Exploitation Forestière de l’Est (SEFE) • Comptoir des Bois de Brive (CBB) • COPACEL UK • James Jones & Sons Ltd • Woodilee Consultancy Ltd Switzerland • Agroscope 3 26.6.2019
  4. 4. Experimental series in EFFORTE (Photos Jari Ala- Ilomäki, Philippe Ruch, Ian Stewart) 4 17.6.2019 Vihti; fine-grained Kuru; mid-grained France Scotland
  5. 5. WP1 – Basic components of soil trafficability • We have taken big steps in understanding – Significance of the soil characteristics and moisture content on soil strength relationship • All findings confirm the importance of wetness in predicting soil strength, especially in fine-grained soils 5 26.6.2019 The models created will work in boreal forests and temperate coniferous and broadleaf forests
  6. 6. WP1 – Basic components of soil trafficability • Soil type can to certain extent be predicted with topography and tree species composition • Traffic has significant impact on compaction (Increase of Bulk density) and it will slow down drying of soil • Especially forest traffic in wet conditions should planned carefully – The significance of machine mass/ground pressure on the soil compaction and future growth conditions requires more research 6 26.6.2019
  7. 7. WP 2 – Increased efficiency in silviculture Studies on Syncronising site preparation and planting Fully automatized mechanical planting 7 26.6.2019
  8. 8. WP 2 – Increased efficiency in silviculture Studies on various methods to increase Productivity of young stand management 8 26.6.2019
  9. 9. WP 2 – Precision forestry Tree locations at moment of harvest Site index within the stand Optimizing growth of the next generation
  10. 10. WP 3 - Big data –applications in forestry 10 Soil type maps Topography Remote sensing Weather data Huge progress going on to employ various data sources in forestry Big data applications provides excellent possibilities to make even more environmentally sound and efficient operations
  11. 11. Enhanced utilisation of Forest Big Data 11 26.6.2019 Prior to logging operations - Trafficability/Bearing capacity - Timing of operations - Planning optimal places for logging trails - Prognosis of wood properties - Scheduling of harvesters – optimal machinery/accessories While logging - Interpretation of machine data – soil properties - Optimal routing of logging trails - Optimal tree bucking Post-harvest - Soil properties - Tree species and dimensions, past tree growth (site index) and tree defects - Post-harvest quality
  12. 12. Conclusions • Excellent atmosphere – excellent collaboration between Researchers and industrial partners and between countries • Altogether 31 Deliverables – and 2-3 appendices – www.luke.fi/efforte • Scientifically new understanding about soil mechanics in forest soils • So far roughly 10 scientific papers – probably more than 10 will be submitted during the next year • Invention, processing and validating of roughly 15 applications in the areas of tree logging and silviculture – many of them very promising 12 26.6.2019
