The pine marten’s home range may have high individual and geographical size variation as estimates vary widely between studies.

Pine marten home range size estimates vary widely between studies. There is either high individual and geographical variation in pine marten home range size, or difficulty in measurement by researchers.

Some sources give an average of 23 square kilometers for males and 6.5 square kilometers for females, others estimate only 2.2 square kilometers for males and 1.5 square kilometers for females. On the island of Minorca, ranges were measured as 0.5 square kilometers for females and 6.9 square kilometers for males.
