"Somewhat bushy tree 4–20 m high, with a tendency to sucker. Bark rough, dark grey to blackish." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

Currently the demand for Acacia stenophylla in Queensland mine rehabilitation is very low. If practice changes toward the utilisation of salt tolerant native trees then the species may be in demand. A. stenophylla is attributed very high salt tolerating ability by various sources. Collection of A. stenophylla seed is a simple task however during the threshing of the pods a very noxious dust is created.
