Eucalyptus gunnii at the highest altitudes is usually a small, often stunted tree, branched to near ground level and without a well defined stem.
Cider gum is endemic to Tasmania and occurs principally on the plains and low hills of the central highlands with a few other relatively high altitude occurrences.
The climatic zone is cold, humid and wet.
The conditions are amongst the most severe experienced by any eucalypt.
In sheltered valleys at somewhat lower elevations it may grow up to 25m tall.
It grows on a variety of soils and at the higher elevations is often on the more rocky better-drained sites in areas of alpine humus soils.
The juvenile foliage of this tree is widely used for floral arrangements.
