These areas occur mostly in Coastal Washington and Oregon. Most of the areas in these counties are predominately in Fire Regime Group V, with a low area burned, a high forest percentage, few ignitions, and some landscape scale fuel treatments. Some of these counties may apply strategic fuel treatments close to homes and capitalize on forest products industry for the economic benefit.
Example of a Typical County — Grays Harbor County, Washington: This coastal rainforest county includes a portion of the Quinault Reservation and Olympic National Forest.
