How to use trees for a fire zone

Q: Are there specific trees with a higher water content that will therefore be more resistant to fire and could function as fire zones?
A: Obviously there are differences between different types of trees in terms of flammability. Aleppo pine, for example, is the worst on a plot of land where there are buildings. It is understood that in reforestation it is advisable to prefer less flammable or unburned trees. Carobs and cypresses can be mentioned as examples for less flammable trees. My colleagues in charge characterize the latter as a non-flammable conifer, which can stop a raging fire and protect anything that follows.
