It's tough to collect larger specimens, as they eventually get some sort of fungal infection and rot out from the chop down through the trunk.  I've tried off and on for 25 years.  It's best to start from seedlings.  If you can't find another source PM me and I can dig some seedlings this coming winter from the swamps when I go bald cypress collecting.
