Beware of nurseries selling trees labelled as just E camphora - there are two subspecies.  E camphora subsp. camphora  grows to 10m.

E camphora subsp humeana quickly reached 10m but can creep up to 20m over a period of decades, given optimum growing conditions.  The mature tree photographs shows the parents of our current stock. At 40 years old they are around 11m tall.
