I live in Carroll County, Maryland and it appears the Leyland cypresses are being attacked by something. Any idea what is going on and the fix? Systematic fix I hope...

The leyland cypress in your photo looks like it was subject to winter damage. Leyland cypress suffered some degree of damage from our cold winter. Some levels were lethal but some are cosmetic and will eventually grow out of it. All you can do is wait for new growth and prune dead wood.
