Description: Robusta eucalyptus (Eucalyptus robusta Sm.), known as swamp mahogany in its native Australia, is a tree now common in Hawaii. First introduced in the 1880's, it has since been widely planted on several islands. The robusta resource of the State today comprises some 110 million board feet of quality sawtimber averaging about 20 inches diameter at breast height and three 16-foot logs per tree. Most of this timber is in plantations of easy access; they range in size from less than 1 acre to several hundred acres.
