Description: Eucalyptus vary in form from low shrubs and multi-stemmed trees less than 10 m in height ("mallees") to large single-stemmed trees more than 60 m tall. The production of lignotubers is a characteristic of many species and this generally makes them respond to coppicing. On the death of the plant stem, either through fire or by cutting, dormant vegetative buds which have been present in a tuberous mass at the base of the tree develop and produce new stems. The ability to grow Eucalyptus under a coppice system of management is central to the economic production of oil.
