Yes I have used Leyland Cypress very aromatic wood. I think it was 3 trunks, air dried very nicely be sure to remove the bark it will attract the beetle that usually kills the tree before it gets big.
Here’s proof a simple cabinet from some of the wood.

Yes. Seal the ends ASAP if not done already.

FYI, when using, Mind the grain direction as best as you can and the bald cypress I use hates low angle planes.
