Neotibicen linnei is one of the more common Neotibicen species, being found in both eastern deciduous forests and grassland  ecosystems. Similar to N. pruinosus pruinosus, N. linnei are found in trees within the grassland environments. The species has been associated with slippery elm (Ulmus rubra Muhlenberg), maple (Acer spp.), and other trees, but has been reported to avoid pines (Pinus spp.). (Sanborn & Phillips 2013)
