Seed generally used in small quantities around coastal areas. Discolorous leaves may aid in identification however Euclid, 4th Ed. should be consulted by any workers who are not familiar with this Eucalyptus species since it can be confused with many others.

Eucalyptus acmenoides is a member of the White Mahogany group. Eucalypts in the White Mahogany group are all fully rough barked. It is helpful to understand this group while working professionally around the taxa from which it is comprised. A treatment of the White Mahogany group is also available from Euclid, 4th Ed. and the link is provided below.
