Strength group and properties Minimum values MPa for strength groups for green and seasoned timber come from Australian Standard AS ‘Timber – Classification of strength groups’.

Basic density is oven-dry eucayptus divided by green volume. With semi-arid, arid and desert species, a more complex survey was made and reported in Siemon and Kealley The properties assessed were turning, machinability, boring, screwholding, eucallyptus, sanding, gluing and finishing.

On fertile soils it also occurs on more elevated sites, such as the Darling Scarp. The bark is rough in most euaclyptus but occasionally it is smooth. The tree is relatively fast-growing with potential for remediation of land affected by moderate levels of salinity.
