Scientific or Botanical Name Acacia crassicarpa
Common Names Acacia Crassicarpa, northern wattle, thick-podded salwood, brown salwood, Papua New Guinea red wattle, red wattle


crassicarpa is typically an erect, single-stemmed tree, commonly up to 15 m tall in Queensland, Australia or up to 25-30 m tall in New Guinea, with a spreading crown. However, populations of spreading shrubs only 1 m tall are also known from coastal dunes in Queensland. The bark is hard, grey or grey-brown, with deep longitudinal furrows when mature, the inner bark being pinkish-red and fibrous. The phyllodes (leaves) are borne on yellowish, slightly angled branchlets which are sometimes pendulous. Phyllodes are resinous, glabrous, pale green to grey-green, normally lanceolate-falcate, broadest below the middle and curved along both margins, 8-27 cm long and 1-4.5 cm wide. The phyllodes have numerous, fine, parallel, longitudinal nerves, with 3 primary and 3-4 secondary nerves more evident than the rest, with the lowermost main nerves confluent at the base of the phyllode and contiguous with the lower margin for a short distance
