Pine Martens

Pine martens, Pine Marten Breeding Den Surveys


Pine martens and their dens are protected under:

  • The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended).

When do I need to get in touch?

Pine martens are typically found in woodlands and occasionally crag habitats primarily in Scotland but are also present in northern England. If you are planning works near these habitats or are unsure as to whether pine marten could be present then please get in touch with us.

Alternatively, a site which has the potential to support pine martens is usually identified within a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal / Phase 1 Survey.
