  • This small tree can be identified at any time of the year though mature trees (with capsules) are required to confirm the identity of this species. Eucalyptus morrisbyi can hybridise with white gum (Eucalyptus viminalis). Peak flowering occurs from February to May.
  • Eucalyptus morrisbyi occurs in coastal, dry sclerophyll woodland on gentle to hilly slopes with poor drainage. It tends to be restricted to gullies that offer some relief in this drought prone, low rainfall area. It is associated with poor soils, with the Calverts Hill subpopulation and associated remnant stands occurring on recent sands overlying dolerite and the Risdon subpopulation on Permian mudstone.

Permit: A permit is required under the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995 to 'take' (which includes kill, injure, catch, damage, destroy and collect), keep, trade in or process any specimen or products of a listed species. Additional permits may also be required under other Acts or regulations to take, disturb or interfere with any form of wildlife or its products, (e.g. dens, nests, bones). This may also depend on the tenure of the land and other agreements relating to its management. ​​​​​
