Effect of the drought on a backyard tree

from w
It was sad to chop down this tree which was in the centre of our backyard, a small tree sheltering the barbecue, but it just died because of the drought. A tree usually covered with a thick foliage of green leaves. The leaves all died and the seedpods cracked open. Our citrus trees are surviving...just.

A lovely sketch of what had been a lovley tree, looks like a hakea of some sort.

I don't know the name of this species but the seedpods I think are like a hakea. I am surprised that a native tree died as many of the native trees are surviving. But I notice that several trees in the nature strips nearby are looking desperate and many leaves are brown.
