Abstract: 

The climate change crisis is slowly destroying the forest ecosystem due to the effects of extreme weather, fires, and insect infestations. In Canada, trees play an essential role in our economy by supplying lumber to the global market and as an integral part of construction. This is increasingly so as architects continue to focus their attention on the use of mass timber. In order to address these demands, it is essential to provide a solution that maintains a healthy and diverse tree culture for a thriving forest ecosystem. This thesis will address the long-term goals of forest management in maintaining a sustainable forest ecosystem in Chibougamau, Quebec. The design proposal offers a tree nursery and forestry research center, focusing on the health of trees and biodiversity by growing saplings, collecting seeds, and research towards paving the way for revitalizing the forest ecosystem as an ongoing goal for the future.
