Don't think so, and I don't know any tuts to refer you do. I do mostly machines and vehicles.
A lot of people use Vue for doing landscapes, since that's what it is designed for, and it's almost stupid easy to use, but it's not cheap . . . well . . . OK . . . compared to Maya it's cheap. Most of the people I know who do landscapes use either that or Max. But . . . I could envision (in Maya) setting up plane, using a noise modifier to make the ground uneven, and using a combination of textures and displacement maps to simulate trees and foliage (if looking at things from an aerial view) or making the foliage out of nurbs if from a ground view. Hope this helps.
