History/Origin Grevillea striata, also known as beefwood, is a tree or shrub native to all Australian states, with the exception of Victoria and Tasmania. Alternative common names for this species include western beefwood, beef oak, beef silky oak and silvery honeysuckle. Sap from the tree was used by aborigines as a cement and for medicinal purposes. Due to its durability and the fact that it splits readily, the timber was used in the past for fence posts and shingles. It is known as Beefwood due to the intense red colour of its heartwood.
