Pine Marten Den Box
Working with the Mammal Society, Vivara Pro has developed this pine marten den box. This box offers martens a place where they can hide or build a nest. The box also includes a suitable maternity area.
The box can be placed both in a tree, or on the ground. Ensure it is placed in a quiet area.
If placing the box in a tree, place at a height of at least 2.5 meters on a tree or façade. If it is on the ground, place in a sheltered area, preferably under bushes or shrubs. The box has two entrances, and you can optionally open either. When placing on a tree or façade, the higher side entrance is recommended. When placing on the ground, preference is given to the entrance at the front.
Little is known about martens in boxes, different types of boxes are currently being tested.
If the box is occupied, maintenance is not possible. If the cabinet is not occupied, we recommend that the box is cleaned once a year. The suspension of the box must also be checked annually.
