Abstract: Vegetation community is an important factor to enrich green landscapes and an important index to evaluate their greening level. With the development of economy and the acceleration of urbanisation, single vegetation landscapes have failed to meet people's aesthetic vision. For ecotourism management, this study takes the two cities of Anshan, Liaoning and Yantai, Shandong as an example to analyse the forest vegetation community in Anshan and the road vegetation community of Yantai. The results showed that herb coverage, shrub coverage, shrub frequency, proportion of arbours and needles, number of shrubs and average diameter had a certain influence on forest community landscape. The relationship between the number of arbours and shrubs and the diameter of arbours had significant influence on forest landscape. Besides, a structural design was carried out on road landscape based on colour and space in order to meet the cooling, noise reduction and shadowing functions to highlight the uniqueness of urban road landscape, combining with the speed of the pacers and drivers. Through the structural analysis of the two plant community landscapes, the related support for the structural design of the future plant community landscapes is provided.
