Sheoak is Allocasuarina. The "casuarina" part is the giveaway.
It's actually a "softwood" being a conifer - probably the hardest softwood out there!
Floridians know all about Casuarinas, I think they call them Australian Pines (they do in Stephen King books that I read ).
Looking spectacular BTW .
Actually, it's not a conifer, it's pretty far removed.
Right you are. I pick up the "cones" when I'm down at the beach for the Galah in my avatar - he loves to eat them.
I've never seen a flower on one. They are the most conifer looking non-conifer out! Nice catch.
