COMMERCIAL NURSERY – NATIVE TREE
eucalyptus pilulari – Blackbutt
A tall tree with an open wide crown of green foliage preferring soils of higher fertility. The trunk has a thick stocking of permanent bark often spreading to the first lower limbs while upper branches are smooth and pale in colour. The base of the tree is often fire scarred hence the common name Blackbutt.
Flowering occurs between July and January but not reliably every year. Older trees form magnificent fauna refuges with many hollow logs.
Uses: Large gardens or park plantings.
