Over a large part of their range, squirrels live in the same types of forests as other species, whether they are hardwood or coniferous. Gray squirrels are more common in areas with high forest cover. Gray squirrel and fox populations might be equal in areas with less than 10% forest cover. Fox squirrels prefer oak and hickory habitats over most of their range, particularly in the West. Pine timber seems to be the preferred habitat for fox squirrels in Florida and Georgia. The western gray squirrel likes conifers, mixed hardwoods, and dry open hardwoods. The Ponderosa pine is strongly associated with the tassel-eared squirrel. Pine squirrels are primarily found in coniferous forests, but they can also be found in mixed hardwood and coniferous forests.
Gray squirrels and fox have similar food habits. They can eat many native foods and are quick to adapt to new food sources. They eat mostly wild tree fruits and nuts in the fall and winter. Fall favorites include acorns, hickory nuts, walnuts and osage orange fruit. Many nuts can be saved for later use. They prefer tree buds in late winter and early spring. They eat fruits, berries and succulent plant materials in summer. When available, they eat fungi, corn, as well as cultivated fruits. These squirrels will chew bark from many trees during peak population, or when food is scarce. They also enjoy eating insects and other animal matter.
Pine squirrels are dependent on coniferous forests to get cones and buds. However, they will also eat other foods that are similar to the diet of gray and fox squirrels. For food, Douglas squirrels rely heavily on Ponderosa Pine. Flying squirrels eat similar food habits to other squirrels. They are however the most carnivorous tree squirrels. When they are available, they eat nestlings and bird eggs, as well as insects and other animal matter. Bluebird houses are a common place for flying squirrels.
