As with some other box species, Eucalyptus wimmerensis occurs in agricultural lands that have been much modified by clearing. Regrowth in these areas can be notoriously difficult to relate to the natural state, and some stands of E. wimmerensis appear to include hybrids, even with the distantly related mallees of the Eucalyptus dumosa group (see E. ×macmahonii).
