  • Roadless Areas except 200ft adacent to the wildlands/urban interface
  • Slopes over 35%
  • Areas within 100ft of rivers and lakes
  • Areas within 100ft of wetlands
  • Mexican Spotted Owl Critical Habitat
  • Areas within 0.5 miles of an existing road
Results were classified into three categories:

  • Fire Risk Mitigation Only:  wildland/urban interface outside the lower montane life zone
  • Ecological Restoration Only:  lover montane forests outside the wildland/urban interface
