Look at his text (below) from LinkedIn ESRI Forestry GIS

Amazing, You share your experience, you pay ESRI $100.

Seriously. Have a look at the end part of the text, re: "how GIS has
helped you solve a problem or bring value to your forestry

It might be useful to what we are going to achieve in QGIS for Forestry.

forestry GIS case study and take advantage of a $300 discount off the
standard registration fee. Presenters are eligible for a discounted
registration rate of $100 which includes all scheduled sessions,

The Esri Forestry GIS Conference, hosted by the Esri Forestry Group,
brings a community of like-minded GIS users together to talk about
experiences and discuss ideas. Support this community by presenting a
case study about how GIS has helped you solve a problem or bring value
to your forestry organization.

- Demonstrate tools, integrations or solutions that improve forest management.
- Describe a model that you used for analysis.
- Share application designs for office, web, or field GIS users.
- Show your lidar or imagery processing workflows.
- Explain your approach to data management and editing.
- Share successes leveraging GIS using spatial optimization.
