"Tree to 12 m high with pendulous branches. Bark hard, fissured, dark grey to black." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

Notes

"Grows mainly on floodplains in fertile alluvial clay (and red earth soils in the S), sometimes dominant in woodland and open woodland." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

Possibly underutilised in coal mining rehabilitation. If practice changes toward the utilisation of salt tolerant native trees then the species may be in demand. Acacia pendula is attributed moderate salt tolerating ability by various sources.
