The identification of wood species could help in locating the source of all that charcoal--the Eucalyptus woodlands in the Macquarie Marshes, for example, the Casuarina woodlands higher in the catchment or the surrounding red soil plains that support Callitris

Various communities of callitris
pine, she-oak and bull-oak also fall under the temperate woodland umbrella.

The sites were located at the base of the hills within the transition zone between woodland, growing on the rocky hill slopes, and the Callitris
forest on the plain.
The vegetation of the Pilliga Forest comprises a mosaic of dry open forest and woodland communities dominated by various Eucalyptus, Angophora, Corymbia, Callitris
, Allocasuarina and Acacia species.
An investigation into the possible inhibitory effects of white cypress pine (Callitris
glaucophylla) litter on the germination and growth of associated ground cover species.
The prior vegetation at the 'Warra South' site consisted of a poplar/bimble box (Eucalyptus populnea)--needlewood (Hakea tephrosperma) association and the 'Wilga' and 'Warra' sites were in a poplar/bimble box (Eucalyptus populnea)--white cypress pine (Callitris
collumelaris) association (Anon.

For example, hiba (Thujopsis dolabrata) and cypress pine (Callitris
glaucophylla) oil preservatives are being sold commercially in Japan and Australia, respectively, and wood-tar preservatives continue to be produced in many countries.
The massive (structureless) soils at the site support a moderately dense stand of white cypress pine (Callitris
Both reserves have been used for timber extraction in the past and as a consequence native pines (Callitris
spp) have been depleted.
