NSW's linear reserves contain significant biodiversity like ecological communities that are not protected in national parks, public reserves or private land.
In rural areas, linear reserves are often the only remaining intact eco natural environments in the local region due to past extensive clearing.
Linear reserves provide critical wildlife habitat especially when connected to native vegetation remnants and may assist in addressing threats associated with climate change.
Due to the importance of linear reserves, the NSW Government established the NSW Roadside Environment Committee (REC) in 1994 to promote and coordinate leading practice in linear reserve environmental management.
