Comments: A small, fast-growing, short-lived tree, cooba yields timber that is relatively lightweight when compared to other Acacia species. Due to the tree’s limited size and scattered distribution, it’s not a commercial species, though it has been used within its natural range for smaller craft wood purposes.
