Squirrel Introduction

Squirrels in your yard and garden could be one (1) of four (4) types of squirrels, flying, tree, pine, or ground squirrels. Ground squirrels are covered in another page entitled chipmunks. With more than 300 species across the globe we could write you a novel. To keep it short the focus will be limited to flying, tree and pine squirrels common in North America.

No matter what the species, squirrels are one of nature’s most agile creatures moving effortlessly from branch to branch at heights over 60 feet. From the largest and smallest tree these fluffy tailed mammals make a precarious yet precise journey though the treescape at a speed that would make even Tarzan jealous.
