Withes

The cedar withes are the smaller sub-branches of the main branches of the cedar tree. There are also occasional withes that grow directly from the cedar trunk. Withes, once harvested, can be used as cordage without modification; they are sometimes referred to as the 'bungee cord' of the forest.
