Casuarina glauca (swamp oak) can thrive in periodically waterlogged, saline sites and in coastal areas where many other trees wouldn't survive. The tree is medium sized growing to 15 metres bearing small male red flowers which produce small cone-shaped fruit.
Casuarina glauca is used mainly as a windbreak, and in fuelwood woodlot plantations particularly on difficult sites.
