As you can see he could wrap it around his palm so it is flexible enough when green in my opinion. That means you can tie whatever you need to tie and leave root to dry. Any root when completely dry becomes as brittle as a small branch. Anyway you've got to experiment to find the best.

Here in the Southeast of the states and while we do not have a lot of types of trees that are found up north, we are blessed with an abundance of Pine trees. This is a very old trick to get cordage know by most people down this way. You are spot on.
