- Forest lands provide very important functions to our environment. Mendocino’s air, water, soil, vegetation, fish and wildlife resources are legally protected and many national, state and local agencies have permitting processes to protect them. If your restoration activities may potentially affect any of these resources, consult a professional for advice.
