The southern half (roughly) consists of mature conifer with a mix of grass/brush understory and woody debris. Much is modeled as a fuel model 10. Areas that have had recent wildfires are composed primarily of a mixture of brush and grass as well as timber stringers. There are oak savannah fuels present to a lesser degree.
