In 1929, the Forest Branch of the British Columbia Ministry of Lands designated land for a forest experiment station on the south shore of Cowichan Lake. Here, long term forest research was to be conducted on the tree species of the Douglas-fir region.
The forest experiment station was developed in two units; first the Mesachie unit, on the south side of Cowichan Lake where the present Research Station is situated, and the North Arm unit which was established in 1939 across the lake, about five kilometres from the village of Lake Cowichan.
