Eucalyptus dendromorpha, the Budawang Ash is an uncommon eucalyptus of south eastern Australia. It is usually a small tree or mallee, though larger specimens can exceed 40 metres in height.

The specific epithet dendromorpha is made of two parts; “tree” and “shape”. The original specimen was collected in June 1901, by Richard Cambage at Macquarie Pass, west of Albion Park near Wollongong. Similar to the White Ash, the upper bark is smooth and pale, often covered with scribbles.

It is found growing in a variety of situations in central and southern areas of New South Wales, from Monga near Braidwood to Mount Tomah in the Blue Mountains. Usually found at a relatively high altitude on moist soils of a poor to medium level of fertility.
