These counties typically fall in the forested, coastal environment of the southeast and in few counties of Texas and Oklahoma. There is low federal ownership and a history of prescribed fire in these counties. There are homes mixed with natural vegetation. The counties can have both a high demographic advantage and stress and a higher ignition density.
