We have not collected large volumes of this species however it appears to be a good option for rehabilitation. The seed size being smallish causes harvesting rates to be a little lower.

Historical Notes

Acacia burrowii was named after R.J.G Burrow (1877- 1957), a senior officer of the NSW Forestry Commission.
