Foliage cover of tallest stratum 30 - 70%
Eucalypt Open Forests
- Contain trees with heights from 10m to 30m.
- Widespread along the subcoastal plains and
foothills and ranges of the Great Dividing
Range in eastern Australia and the subcoastal
ranges of the south-west of Western Australia.
- Generally have a shrubby understorey which is low to moderate in height, but in drier and/or nutrient rich sites they may have a grassy understorey with scattered shrubs and/or cycads.
Clearing for grazing and agriculture in the major agricultural zones of eastern Australia and the south-west of Western Australia has been widespread. The rate of clearing of this MVG by the early twentieth century saw the development of crown reserves for their protection, either as national parks or as production forests, and the establishment of forestry departments.
