Eucalyptus radiata or 'narrow leaved peppermint' is one of only a few eucalypts species considered suitable for the commercial distillation of Eucalyptus oil. It is an upright tree to 20 metres or so which gives it a disadvatage when it comes to harvesting foliage for oil production when compared to mallee species planted for the same purpose.
Narrow-leaved peppermint is nevertheless and attractive tree well suited for utility purposes with the added bonus of highly aromatic foliage.
