CategoriesTree
Common Name(s)Gympie Messmate, Dead Finish
FamilyMyrtaceae

Description

"Tree occasionally to 55 m tall but more commonly 10–25 m tall. Forming a lignotuber." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)

Notes

Eucalyptus cloeziana is usually a tall forest tree on deeper soils (often coastal) and a eucalyptus woodland tree of lesser stature elsewhere. On occasion it has been required in revegetation although best known as a timber plantation subject. The fruit do form in large clusters which stand out to the seed collector however height is often a considerable obstacle unless the harvesting method is by rifle.

Historical Notes

Distribution
