Road reserves and other linear reserves such as travelling stock routes cover about six percent of the area of New South Wales, Australia. In some parts of the State they comprise the only remnants of native vegetation due to clearing for broadacre farming.
A forum was recently organised by the NSW Roadside Environment Committee to inform linear reserve land managers and other interested groups about best practices to manage these environments. The proceedings provide some excellent best practice case studies that can be used elsewhere in Australia and across the world.
