I have a 3 cluster foxtail palms about 5 years old. The smallest one died and the other 2 are doing great. Can I cut the small one off at the bottom or do I leave it alone?

If it is dead, then it will be completely fine to remove it. If it is still living, I would wait until all growth from the shoot is dead to remove it.
