DIY Option

If you choose to purchase structures directly from us and put them up yourself, we have put together kits to make installation easy. Kits can be purchased online through the CVC Store or as part of your potted trees and shrubs direct sale order form. Each kit comes with:

  • A nest box made of 1” thick rough cut white pine made to suit the requirements of your target species
  • Hardware and materials required for installation
  • A site selection and maintenance guide
  • Wood chips for the first year (if required by the target species)
