Udall Calls on CO Homebuilders to Use Beetle-Killed Timber

September 29, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, Mark Udall called on Colorado homebuilders to use beetle-killed trees from our forests to build homes, thus clearing local forests of hazardous trees and creating homegrown jobs in the process. At an event showcasing a home built by New Town Builders, a Denver builder of energy-efficient homes that has pledged to use pine-beetle wood in its homes, Udall touted the economic and forest-health benefits to utilizing our state’s 4 million acres of dead or dying trees felled by bark beetle that otherwise risk potential wildfire or falling on hikers and powerlines.
