The river Jerte gives name to a well known valley in Spain whose climate conditions and richness in water allow the growth of a very important production of best quality cherries. The mountain slopes have been transformed in order to plant different varieties of cherry trees and to obtain the best fruit from spring to early summer. The original forest has dissapeared in the most productive part of the valley, although it´s still quite well preserved in several areas, particularly in the North side of the mountains —chestnut trees mainly—, and in the less accesible zones of the South side —oaks in the highest areas, and diverse species in the wet and shaded gorges—. "Las Nogaledas" —the name evokes a place abundant in walnut trees—, is a good example of this; it´s an interesting place to visit, following the path under the trees which climbs up along the stream in a sequence of beautiful waterfalls.

El río Jerte da nombre a un valle conocido en España por su producción de cerezas, merced a la bondad de su clima y su abundancia en agua. Tanto las zonas bajas en la ribera del río como las laderas de las montañas se aprovechan en su mayor parte para el cultivo de diferentes variedades de cerezos, que han sustituido en su mayor parte a las diversas especies de árboles silvestres. Con todo, el bosque original aún se conserva en aquellas áreas menos productivas o accesibles: extensas matas de castaño en las laderas con orientación norte, robledales en las partes más elevadas de la solana, y diversas especies de caducifolios en las gargantas húmedas y umbrías. "Las Nogaledas", en el término de Navaconcejo, es un buen ejemplo; es un paraje que merece visitar, siguiendo el sendero que asciende a la sombra de los árboles, junto al arroyo que en su curso forma una preciosa sucesión de cascadas.
