Acacia implexa known commonly as 'hickory wattle' or 'lightwood' is a fast growing tree which occurs naturally over a wide range from the Atherton Tableland in Queensland to Western Victoria. Lightwood can grow to a height of over 10m on favourable sites and is adaptable to a range of soils.
Acacia implexa (hickory wattle) resembles in appearance the better known Acacia melanoxylon (blackwood). Lightwood is well suited for erosion control and soil stabilisation as well as for screening and amenity plantings.
