Developing a forest-friendly home building technique


Beetle-killed timber may find a home through Timber Age Systems
Kyle Hanson believes use of beetle-killed ponderosa pine to make cross-laminated timber panels can help deal with widespread stands of dead trees in the San Juan National Forest, bring back a small-scale regional lumber industry and perhaps lower local homebuilding costs.
Timber Age Systems processes lumber from ponderosa pines for its cross-laminated timber at Durango Wood Co.
