Below is a list of contractors who work in the county on forestry and fuel reduction projects. This list is by no means complete. Many tend to work on larger scale projects. As you will see, there are many operators and tree service companies who work in Mendocino County. Please excercise due diligence when choosing. Ask friend and neighbors for recommendations or ask the contractor for references. Also, it is best to hire companies that have proof of liability insurance.
