The Joint Base Cape Cod (JBCC) is home to one of the largest remaining pine barrens in the Northeast. The project considers the forest within the reserve, whose thousands of acres stand amid the stress of surrounding urban development. Through the introduction of forestry rotation, the project envisions a vigorous mosaic of varying successional habitats. These would not only increase biodiversity and shift the ecosystem productivity but also create a series of buffered clearings in the forest that could be occupied by temporary encampments in the event of an evacuation. Other excessive land that the military holds onsite will be involved into the new activity calendar as well, such as the Otis Air Field.
