There are very few counties in this category. They are mostly found the southern plains of east central New Mexico and scattered counties in Kansas and Texas. They are characterized by rangeland systems that experience a large amount of area burned. There is little federal ownership and the landscape is dominated by private ranchland. When a fire occurs, they can tend to be larger fires. The application of fuel treatments could work on a seasonal basis.
