We have gained height quickly and this moves away from the riverside forest formed by willows and alder. Here you can still see some alder.
Above the riverside forest, when the high humidity of the soil is lost, there is a forest of transition between it and the mountain oak: it is the hazelnut. This hazelnut is not alone but it is coexisting with other trees: the ash trees, which we will discuss later. The same avellanae comes to combine with oaks and form blackberries and hazel under the oak casks.
Hazel trees are shrubs with many stems of strain. They have been enhanced to make natural tanks and thresholds in fields and paths. The hazelnuts (foto) are very tasty but the trees are not as productive as their cousins cultivated on the low ground. They harvest when they fall to the ground in the fall. Did you know that infused leaves with a napkin are used to clean wounds and healing?. Drinks made from it are vasoconstrictor and promote circulation.
They make quite a shadow and so there are not too many plants below it. We see ivy and a typical fern: the fern of "avellanosa" or "of water", is always green and in spring it grows up by the eye of the old leaves and makes these great rosettes. Along with the aquiline fern, which is dried in summer, they are among the largest we can find. Other small ferns are associated with walls and stones.
