Here's some info re: propagating Leyland Cypress -
cuttings 6-12 inches long, anytime of the year
younger plants produce higher rooting percentages
brown wood at base, wound by taking off needles
IBA/talc 3000-8000ppm, or Dip N Grow
stick in 50/50 peat:perlite medium
70-75F bottom heat
polytent or mist for 10-12 weeks
My readings say it's very easy to propagate.
If you need more "how-to" may I suggest The Reference Manual of Woody
Plant Propagation by M. Dirr and C. Heuser, Varsity Press ISBN
