Dead Fronds

South Mississippi experienced 16-degree weather this winter and froze all our sago palms. Should I remove all the brown fonds?

The brown fronds do need to come off as they are dead, but only remove these and leave any green that may be present. It is hard to say how well they will grow back. Sago palms do not deal well with lost fronds from cold damage.
