Contemporary forest management design is generating innovative ideas as it evolves towards the management of forest landscapes. These ideas embody different management paradigms, modelling approaches and software engineering techniques. We explore these three in detail and suggest an ecological landscape management (ELM) paradigm coupled with meta-heuristics modelling and object-oriented software engineering techniques as a suitable framework for designing management for forest landscapes. We hope the paper provides insight and stimulates discussion about various forest landscape management design approaches.
