  • Usually within 50m of creekline or where there is lots of subsoil moisture.
  • Is usually a tall tree up to 45 m in height, with diameter at breast height to 1.8 m and a relatively large straight bole. On less favourable, particularly swampy sites it is a smaller tree of poor form. It has a natural distribution which coincides closely with that of Jarrah Eucalyptus marginata (1).
  • Used in general construction, case manufacture, sleepers, flooring and panelling. Relatively easy to work, although interlocked grain can make it difficult (1).
  • Availability generally limited to Western Australia, and in relatively short supply (1).
