      Finnish visitors look at Upper Michigan's forestry industry

      Visitors from Sutkomo, Finland were in Ishpeming on Monday afternoon as part of the Sister Cities Program.

      Five members of the program made the trip. They arrived last week and have been comparing the forestry industry in Upper Michigan with theirs in Finland.

      They visited state and national forest areas as well as a local sawmill. They're using this trip to gather information on our forest industry.

      The visitors were also presented with a gift from a Marquette delegate who has visited Finland. The Sister Cities Program also sends interested groups to Kajaani, Finland.
