Threatened species

Eucalyptus parramattensis subsp. decadens (Eucalyptus parramattensis subsp. decadens)



Species Action Statement

This species has been assigned to the Keep-watch species management stream under the Saving our Species (SoS) program.

Justification for allocation to this management stream

Relatively large populations of this species occur within reserves (e.g. Werakata National Park) where current management is sufficient to ensure their long term security.

Conservation status

Management objectives

This action statement aims to ensure the security of this species in the long-term.

Species sightings and management sites across NSW

How will this species be managed?

Key management sites for this threatened species are being identified by the Office of Environment and Heritage and other program partners, where feasible, cost-effective and beneficial to the threatened species. Currently, no management sites have been identified for this threatened species.

  • This species is likely to be secure in NSW for the long term without targeted management, assuming adequate ongoing management of habitat within the public reserve system. This species is therefore a lower priority for investment than other, more threatened species that have urgent management requirements. Any change in the status of this species (e.g. decline in abundance or emergence of a significant threat) will trigger a shift to the Site-managed stream and the development of a conservation project, which will be prioritised for implementation.
A number of state-wide conservation actions have also been identified for this threatened species, which can be viewed by clicking the link below.

Show actions

  • Survey recorded sites to document threats and determine appropriate recovery strategies.
  • Prepare species profile and EIA guidelines.
  • Undertake population viability analysis particularly for those small populations with a high risk of local extinction.
  • Conduct management-related ecological research, particularly into fire response.
  • Seek to increase the level of legislative protection for sites through land-use planning mechanisms and conservation agreements.
  • Prepare and implement site-specific management plans for sites that are located on public land.
  • Incorporate a suitable fire regime for the species into plans of management for sites on public and private land.
  • Undertake works to maintain or improve habitat connectivity within and between populations.
  • Undertake genetic research to assess diversity within and between populations and to determine the risk of in-breeding depression in small isolated populations.
  • Undertake weed control at priority sites infested with Bitou Bush and Lantana.
  • Provide information to consent and determining authorities about specific ameliorative measures that can be applied to reduce off-site impacts from development.
  • Assist private landowners to implement key threat abatement actions in site-specific management plans.
  • Commission surveys and review of species status.
