England Blackbutt is sourced from the coastal ranges and tablelands of northern NSW and southern Queensland. On the tablelands it is sometimes found in pure stands, although it is more commonly the dominant species within stands containing other tableland species such as Messmate (E. obliqua), Manna Gum (E. viminalis), Brown Barrel (E.fastigata) and several Stringybarks. The material is very similar in appearance and properties to Blackbutt (E. pilularis). The colour ranges from pale browns to straw blondes, with gum veins being a common feature. The grain is usually quite straight.
