Eucalyptus pellita is an important plantation hardwood tree due to fast growth and tolerance for poor soils, that means it is often used for land reclamation projects.  It is a popular hardwood and lumber tree, marketed as Red Mahogany due to its exotic colour and is a hardwood with a fine grain and very attractive red colouring.
It is a versatile wood suitable for engineering applications and for use in construction, due to its figuring, it is prized for furniture and turning.  It has become a prestigious timber owing to its durability, termite resistance and distinctive colouring.
