It is considered useful as a street tree, due to its disease and pest resilience, its high tolerance for smog, drought and poor drainage, and the fact that it needs only moderate-to-light upkeep.
It often requires lopping to accommodate overhead power lines, but survives pruning quite well. In form it is used as a replacement for the weedy Camphor Laurel (Cinnamomum camphora) while having a low potential for being weedy itself. The tree is one of the hardiest and most successful street trees within wider Sydney and elsewhere.
Description: A medium sized native evergreen tree with dense conical shaped crown.
In the wild its habitat ranges from moist open forest and rainforest ecotones, where it might reach heights of 40 metres or more, to coastal headlands where it acquires a stunted, wind-sheared habit.
Moreover, it is considered safer than eucalypts because it rarely sheds limbs.
Flowering Time: White flowers in late spring/ summer.
Uses: An excellent shade tree with an attractive pinkish-cinnamon to orangey bark.
Height & Width: 8-12m x 5-7m.
Common names include brush box, Queensland box, Brisbane box, pink box, box scrub, and vinegartree.
