Jumping cholla batman!

Where can I legally collect cholla cactus wood in the Palm Springs area?

A friend is interested in a few pieces for some craftwork. I have seen listings on ebay, but free (and the opportunity to select for shape) is preferred. Obviously, I'm not collecting from Joshua Tree National Park.

Couple of suggestions:
Contact some of the landscaping companies. There seemed to be a fair amount of action when I was there earlier this year as houses / gardens are redeveloped.
The only people you ever see on the street in the mornings are gardeners it could be worth talking to a few.
Maybe talk with the Agua Caliente's either at the Taquitz facility or up at the Trading Post at the end of S. Palm Canyon Drive.

We went here. They told us about having a relationship with a nearby preserve. But they gave us the idea that it wasn't for the public.
