In the spring of 1989, the Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) received funding support through a Forestry Canada FRDA contract to build an insulated seedling-transportation canopy for use on a pickup truck. The objective of the study was to compare the thermal and operational effectiveness of the canopy to conventional methods of seedling transportation and field storage. In the summer of 1989, FERIC tested the insulated canopy by using it to transport cold-stored seedlings on one planting contract and hot-lift seedlings on a second contract.
