This stone/tree marten box was developed in conjunction with the Mammalian Society. The box provides martens with a place where they can hide or build a nest. The hive has a special maternity section for giving birth to the young. The cabinet is made of exterior plywood and the roof is covered with roofing material.

  • This cabinet can be placed in a tree or on the ground. For this, choose a quiet place.
  • Place the box for the pine marten at least 2.5 meters high on a tree or facade.
  • The box can also be placed in attics where martens are desired.
  • When placing the cabinet on the ground, find a sheltered spot under bushes. To prevent rotting in the soil, it is wise to place the cabinet slightly off the ground on, for example, a few bricks.
  • Optionally, you can open one or two inputs. When placed on a tree or facade, the taller side entrance is recommended. When placed on the ground, the preferred entrance is at the front.

Little is still known about martens in nest boxes, different types of nest boxes are being tested. For information on martens and the use of enclosures, visit the Mammalian Society website:

If cabinet is occupied, maintenance is not possible. The risk of disruption is then too great. If the closet is not inhabited, cleaning is possible once a year. The cabinet is finished with a water-based lacquer. For longer life, the cabinet can be repainted after a few years.
