These areas are located primarily in the Upper Midwest, such as Lake of the Woods region of Minnesota and the Great Lakes states. This is a forested part of the country which can support a forest products industry. There are many homes mixed into the landscape, which can lead to problematic restoration of the fire regime, but prescribed fire can be used with sufficient local planning and implementation. There is considerable private land ownership, rather than a federal presence.
Example of a Typical County — Adams County, Pennsylvania: Best known for Gettysburg, Adams county also includes fire adapted forests of Michaux State Forest, which are not regularly burned.
