Frostbitten Sago Palm

Anonymous added on April 11, 2011 | Answered

I planted a good size Sago about six years ago and have had no problems. It's grown well and now stands at about 5 1/2 feet tall but this past winter was harsh and now it has many brown stems. Not all, but quite a few. My question is, do I need to trim them or leave them be? Also, I have some others that are not nearly as big (roughly 2 feet tall). They also have been bitten.

You will need to remove the yellow and brown fronds, but only those, as they will not come back. Do not remove green fronds. These articles will helpyou as well:
