depends on what you define as small---kind of like oaks, small in eucs is a relative term as most of the relatively frost hardy species can top out at 30' or more at maturity. the mallees can be somewhat smaller but are often from areas that do not get frost and therefor are potentially problamatic for relatively temperate areas. some smaller eucs to consider (strictly on size and some frost resistance and not neccessarily on suitablilty for your particlar climate) include perriniana, neglecta, gregsoniana, pulvrulenta, and moorei. OTOH, most all eucs can be kept small by either either cutting them back hard (right to the ground) every 3 or 4 years or letting the occassional hard frost or wind storm do it for you. some trees to consider that might like your climate and tolerate cutting back include cinerea, nova-anglica, and ovata (thought i sent you some seed of this species once upon a time"""). you might also consider siderocylon and leucoxylon. hope this helps.
