The pine marten inhabits forest habitats, including deciduous, mixed, and coniferous forest and prefers old-growth forest over young forest.

The pine marten is considered to be a habitat specialist. Having a closed treetop as cover from predation is thought to be an important habitat criterion for the species.

As such, the pine marten prefers forest habitats, including deciduous, mixed, and coniferous forest. Old-growth forest is often preferred over young forest.
