National Forest is a different story...
First of all DON'T SHOOT TREES, or rocks for that matter. It really TINKLEes the rangers off.
Bring some kind of target, also the farther from roads and such that you go the better, and take the target with you. Bring a hefty bag to put it in afterwords.
This is taken from www.tunka.com a boulder group that plays in national forest all the time:
The rules below may or may not be current. At the time of this writing, they were written and explained as clearly and accurately as possible. The information below is offered 'as is' with no warranties expressed or implied. To check on current national forest regulation, please contact the USDA Forest Service or the Boulder Ranger Disctrict at 303-541-2500.
Hunting and discharging firearms in national forest is legal. Because paintball markers fall under the 'firearms' category, paintball is also legal in national forest.
Firearm regulation in national forest dictates that you must be at least 150 yards from any structure.
A road is considered a 'structure' so be sure to not fire your marker from the road (you wouldn't want to attract attention this way either).
Access to public land
County roads are considered public and you may travel along them (car or foot) regardless of whether it's adjacent to public land or not. Public access is granted on county roads through private land (regardless of whether the land owners like it or not). County roads are denoted on maps by diamond-like numbering or ovals in some cases.
Forest service roads are usually denoted by rectangles (vertical or horizontal). Forest service roads through private land are considered private and you MAY not have any rights to travel through them if they travel through private land. Watch for signs and caution!

i would avoid needlessly sooting trees and nature in general. the least you could do is rub mud/dirt on the paint you cant wipe off.

You should look into coming down to the Sedalia games, if you haven't yet. Task Force 303 usually sets up several games, and they draw close to twenty players regularly -- more from time to time. Terrain's good, too.
The officer-in-charge of the USAFA paintball club checked with a forest ranger he knew, and the report we got back was very different from the advice posted above. Allegedly, he said "as long as you pick up your trash and use regular, washable paint, go right ahead." So, take that for what it's worth.

State park land is a no-go for shooting, and most cities have laws/regulations/ordinances against it. But some areas (especially unincorporated areas) are fine.
