What's wrong with c?

Choice C breaks parallel structure. Ignoring the rest, you can read the last part of the sentence like this: Requirements for a forest's soil, for a forest's air, for a forest's degree of moisture, and for a forest's weather conditions. Of course, "for a forest's" only needs to be stated once.
