Here is an example of living bridges in India. Any other examples in different climates?

Yes, especially in forests where there are still many interlaced strands of ceder. They form almost platforms. I have seen this work well in draws with alder.

The link is to a company (no affiliation) that does it, but the pictures are interesting to see. Since white willow will fuse just like cedar I wonder if you could make it over a wider distance by planting support beams/trees.
