Recently we had a freeze here in Louisiana. I have 2 sago palms that have turned brown. They look dead. How do I cut off the dead parts?

You will want to wait until warmer weather returns. Only cut off dead growth when you see signs of new growth. After this, you may cut the dead growth off. Just snip them with something clean, or cut them with a clean knife.
