Uses: Fast growing eucalyptus often used as a plantation tree. Grows tall with lower branches shedding to reveal a long clean trunk. Excellent as a high windbreak but needs under planting due to exposed trunks. Flowers attract bees for honey. The smaller E. cladocalyx var. nana Dwarf Sugar Gum grows to a height from 6-12m and is a better choice for smaller spaces.
This species of eucalyptus is a recognised breeding habitat for the endangered Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos. Growing or retaining stands of these trees will encourage the return of these birds.
