Hi Deb,

Drooping limbs on Italian cypress are usually caused by over fertilization, over watering or both. Watering of Italian cypress should be infrequent and deep. Most of the excessive growth could be managed with proper irrigations. Deep watering once a week in midsummer would be excessive unless it was growing on a very sandy soil. Watering deep during the winter of more than once a month would also be excessive. One fertilization in the spring is adequate.

Another possibility would be some critter living in the tree such as an oppossum.
