Pleasant Cove manufacturers design and build a nest box for every cavity nesting species of bird in North American, plus bats, bees, butterflies, squirrels as well as a complete assortment of feeders. A select group of our feeders are made of certified plantation grown Philippine mahogany; however the majority of our nest boxes and most of our feeders are crafted of custom milled, premium grade, sustainably grown, Eastern white pine.
Our supplier is a leader in responsible forestry management practices. They replant where they harvest, secure the soil from erosion, preserve wildlife habitats and ensure a healthy and productive forest. They have received the National Arbor Day Foundation Award for outstanding forestry practices and are committed to the future.
Our products are neither painted nor stained, nor do they require it. Over time the wood will darken, turn gray and ultimately blend in with its environment. If simply cleaned seasonally, our products will last for many years. Should you wish to paint or stain, care must be taken to use non-toxic water-based acrylics and not oil based products. A seasonal light coating of boiled linseed oil is an effective non-toxic preservative.
