Pancher ex Brongn. & Gris
(Brongn. & Gris) Pancher ex Baill.
Like several other genera related to Eucalyptus, it is called a eucalypt. It is a tree up to 35 meters tall with a trunk over a meter wide. It might flower only every seven years. The flowers each have four clusters of stamens and staminodes.
The species has been called "one of New Caledonia's most economically and ecologically significant trees." It has been heavily exploited for its strong, dark red, resinous wood, which is useful for the construction of buildings, bridges, boats, and telephone poles. Its populations have been significantly reduced by logging.
