It depends on which type of false cypress, but generally speaking, they don't bud back well at all. I currently have 2 tress, a Hinoki cypress cultivar (Chamacyparis obtusa 'Nana gracilis'), and a Boulevard cypress/blue moss cypress (Chamacyparis pisifera 'Boulevard'). The Hinoki doesn't bud back on old wood at all. I've had better luck with the other cypress, which through several years of good fertilizing and cutting back, is developing more foliage closer to the trunk...definately a long term project, though.
