Yew is a species, easily cultivated from cuttings and seed. If there really are that few Taxus Floridana left in the wild, id be very surprised if there is'nt some kind of conservation project to save them. If you do find them, you'll probably be ok taking a few seeds.

Oh, there are, scads of them. The tree -- as a tree -- probably isn't that rare any more. But in the eyes of biologists and naturalists there is a helluva difference between a tree in an arboretum and a tree in its native habitat.
