It won’t work. The moisture in the green wood will weaken the glue joint and movement as it drys will break what’s left. In the situation tenontim talked about, they don’t use glue at all. They aim for the greatest disparity in mc they can get. That way the greenwood shrinks as it loses moisture to the dry wood, and the dry wood swells as it gains from the green. When the two reach equilibrium, you have to cut the joint apart.
