Comments: Usually a small tree, drooping sheoak is appropriately named for its drooping branches and long needle-like foliage which give it a unique appearance. Despite its name, drooping sheoak is not a true oak in the Quercus genus, but is part of the unrelated Allocasuarina genus commonly known as sheoaks.
