We are attracted by a group of different trees between pine woods, these are Goat willows.
Goat willows is one of the willows that best suits dry soils. It can live in wetlands, cleared forests and obagues.
The Latin name caprea is received, it seems, because of the taste of goats that eat its leaves.
It is a dyeing plant, dyes yellow, and also blue with iron sulphate.
Of the secondary crust (líber) of its branches were made ropes and their wood, forks, rings and clogs.
