Silky Oak

Silky OakQueensland Silky Oak (not a real Oak.... it's actually an Australian native from the Grevillea family which grows in rainforest areas (and many backyards) in Queensland; also known as Lacewood outside Australia).

The Silky Oak is the largest tree in the Grevillea family which consists of over 200 different types of tree.

Northern Silky Oak is a medium-sized to tall tree, growing to 40 metres. The tree bears large, woody fruits - up to a size of approximately 12 cm long by 8 cm wide.

Many other tree species are also marketed as "silky oak" - thirty other tree species are listed on the Victorian Woodworker's Association website under this common name.
Cardwellia sublimis (Northern Silky Oak) and Orites excelsa are the two other most commonly cited species.
In the northern hemisphere, it was once a leading face veneer, where it was marketed as "lacewood."

In the northern hemisphere, it was once a leading face veneer, where it was marketed as "lacewood."

During the years from the late 1950's to late 1970's, this tree species was the mainstay of the northern Queensland timber industry - making up to 15 percent of the total mill intake.
Produces sawn wood of medium strength that is used for furniture, packing cases, flooring, paneling, and plywood.

Beautiful divided foliage is silvery on the undersides. Bright orange flowers occur in racemes to 15 cm long in spring.

Folige is large, deep green and fern-like (whitish beneath). It is a fast growing tree that has been grown in many countries around the world - for both its wood and flower (around November & December horizontal clusters of fiery orange mass in the branches).
