Cold Damage to Palms
I have three palm trees which sustained damage because of an extemely cold winter in the South. The Kentia palm stalk is green at the bottom, but the fronds are brown (but not stiff). Do I need to prune or cut back to help with growth, and if so, how? Also, I have A Majestic palm and Pigmy palm in similar situations. Do I prune or cut these as well, and if so, how far down?

Remove any yellow or brown fronds this spring but do not remove any of the green. These articles will help you as well: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
