Eucalyptus cladocalyx is a commonly planted tree across southern Australia as an amenity plant, as a windbreak or shelterbelt species, or for timber and firewood production. It is drought tolerant and adaptable to a wide range of soil and climate types. The susceptibility of seedlings to frost limits its success in some areas. The wood of E. cladocalyx has moderate strength and durability and in the past has been used for furniture, flooring, panelling, firewood, poles, posts, general construction and railway sleepers. The wood is termite resistant.
