Red squirrels have declined markedly in the UK over the last 50 years, with the introduced North American grey squirrel replacing it in many areas. If red squirrels are still present in the area you can help them out by providing a nest box which will provide a warm, dry space in which to raise their young. Boxes can offer a safer squirrel nest than natural dreys which can be susceptible to soaking in heavy rain, collapse in high winds and under the weight of adults and young. They may also be used as a dry refuge in winter.
Our red squirrel nest box has been designed after consultation with experts to provide a safe environment for red squirrels. Each box has multiple entrances to make it easy for the squirrels to access the box. The boxes should be sited on a tree in a woodland area as high as possible (at least 3m).
Most of the panels for this box are precision cut from FSC Certified exterior grade European birch plywood, whilst the front is precision machined from FSC Certified softwood with its bark still on.
