Abstract: Conservation work conducted at Canadian Conservation Institute connected with fossil forest discovered in 1985 on Axel Heiberg Island, North West Territories. Analysis of fossil wood shows it to be typically non-mineralised, substantially compressed, and containing recognisable cellulose and lignin, although cellulose fraction is considerably reduced. Conservation treatment techniques were developed for various types of fossil from the site.
