|Common Name(s)||Broad-Leaved White Mahogany|
"It occurs on poor skeletal soils." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)
Eucalyptus carnea has been required in quite small amounts yet consistently over the time we have collected its seed. The collections have been made in the Jimna Ranges, Qld, where it associates with Eucalyptus siderophloia, Eucalyptus punctata, Eucalyptus tereticornis, Corymbia intermedia, Lophostemon confertus among other trees. It may also be found there in the vicinity of E.acmenoides. In this geographical area the crown is bluish in colour and may become relatively tall.
E.carnea is a member of the white mahogany group of eucalypts and can be confused with other similar eucalyptus species. Workers involved with this tree should familiarise themselves with the notes relating to it within Euclid 4th Ed. and also with their overview of the white mahogany group.
