There are no rules when it comes to natural handle material. I usually avoid woods like cedar because of it's lack of hardness but if you have some root stock which is harder than normal then don't be scared to give it a try.
A good "rule of thumb" to remember is that the cost of the materials in a knife is going to be less than the value of your labor and it is usually a good idea to use the best materials that you can.
