Senna coronilloides has proved difficult to obtain in quantities from bushland harvesting to date. Otherwise it has the attributes of a useful shrub for rehabilitation. In the South Burnett region we observe C. coronilloides in small groups under or in proximity to Eucalyptus moluccana, Casuarina cristata and Acacia harpophylla.
