Description

"Single-stemmed shrub or tree 6–12 m high." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

Notes

"Grows in open woodland, open eucalypt scrub or in mixed Eucalyptus-Callitris forests on rocky hillsides often on conglomerate and sandstone, in skeletal sandy soils or sandy loams." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

Acacia crassa is underutilised in rehabilitation projects. It has likely been confused for and collected as similar species such as Acacia leiocalyx which is collected in relatively large quantities. The recorded range of A. crassa falls across the major coal producing basins, it flowers and sets seed prolifically in years with reasonable rainfall and it can be collected efficiently with relatively inexpensive methods.

Historical Notes

Distribution

"Occurs in the Burnett, Wide Bay and Darling Downs districts, Qld, and the North Western Plains and Central Western Slopes, N.S.W. " (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
