Sago Palm Trees

Frozen Sago Palm

Anonymous added on January 20, 2011 | Answered

The recent freezing weather in south Mississippi has made the top half of my six foot sago palm turn brown. Should I prune the top (damaged part) and leave the bottom layers that are still green? This beautiful plant is about 15 years old and I do not want to cause more harm to it.
