Air-dry density is the average mass divided by volume at 12 per cent moisture content this is the average environmental condition in the coastal capital cities around Australia. There are other species such as red tingle and yellow tingle whose timber is rarely commercially available because the areas of occurrence are predominantly in conservation areas.
Consequently, the strength values quoted are from the above two tables. The crowns regenerate in late spring. Branchlets lacking oil glands in the pith.
