Eucalyptus caliginosa, commonly known as broad-leaved stringybark, or New England stringybark, is a medium-sized tree with grey to red-brown, fibrous, stringy, fissured longitudinally, bark with red-brown underlayers to small branches. The common stringybark on ridges in pastoral New England is a valuable honey and pollen tree to 30 x 15 metres, which flowers during late autumn into winter on Northern Tablelands of NSW. The stem is erect and branching, with a dense crown. This tree is drought and frost resistant and adaptable to most well-drained soils.

Distribution is common on ridges and hilltops of Queensland, the Northern Tablelands, New South Wales and North-West Slopes of NSW.

It is propagated using seed. It requires light shading when young.
