Thanks for this spotting :) I like the weeping branchlets, and now I'm do a research on it. They are sometime said to be the most unique angiosperms due to their pine-like appearance. Anyway, good spot!

Wow! I've never heard this called "She Oak" before. Generally land managers refer to it as Australian Pine and most of the time here in FL you'll here it called that. It's another invasive, and many of the ones in Manatee County (Holmes Beach included) were either initially planted purposely to serve as windbreaks, prevent erosion, or delineate fields in agricultural land.
