Notes

This species is native to parts of south-eastern South Australia. It is frequently introduced elsewhere, either as an ornamental tree, a windbreak or for timber plantations. It easily escapes from many of these plantings and is now regarded as an environmental weed in other parts of Australia. It has also naturalised overseas in southern Africa, California (U.S.A.) and Hawaii.

In the Canary Islands, this tree is known to be cultivated as was shown in an extensive overview of the genus for Gran Canaria ( Marrero Rodríguez 2016). However, sexual reproduction was not yet observed for that species. In Santa Úrsula (La Quinta) in Tenerife, Eucalyptus cladocalyx   is mass-planted in several localities. Saplings have been recorded on several occasions.
