Eucalyptus Stellulata can be coppiced for firewood / biomass, though generally it is grown as screening and hedging as it is happy to be cut back and pruned. If you have a small garden, then this naturally smaller Eucalyptus would be a good choice.

The common name of Stellulata is Black Sally, a reference to the weeping aesthetic of the mature tree, similar to Willow (Salix, Sallys).

Offering good shade from summer sun.
