E. regnans is confined to Tasmania and Victoria.
It is one of the three or four most important timber species
in these two states. In 1958, E. regnans produced the
fifth largest volume of sawn eucalypt timber in Australia
(Hanson, 1961).
E. regnans grows best under fairly cool conditions
at 100 ft. to 2,000 ft. in Tasmania and at 600 ft. to 4,000
ft. in Victoria, on a variety of soils of medium to high
fertility under a fairly evenlly distributed rainfall of
at least 45 inches per year. The tree frequently exceeds
200 ft. in height (up to 322 1 ) and usually grows in pure
stands of one age, sometimes with 10,000 cubic feet of
merchantable wood per acre. Its most common associates
are E. delegatensis and E. oblique,. E. Regnans is "spar
aged" at 150 years and "mature" at 250 years. It rarely
exceeds 400 years. In dense stands on good sites it may
grow an average of 100 cubic feet of merchantable timber
per acre per year during the first 100 years. Its intended
rotation is 60 to 90 years.
