@minnesota Actually there is another vast difference in Finish forrests cmpared to most USA Forrests.
In Finland there is many MANY forrest roads. These roads are just good enough that firetrucks can pass, althuogh that is just barely.
Therefore if there happens to become a forrest fire, even if it is in "middle of nowhere" we will get the necessary equipment and manpower there relatively swiftly. And we also get a watersupply from some neaby lake quite often, as we do have lot of lakes.
This is something that is near impossible, in most states of the USA.
