Container Sago Palm Trees

How to Prune Sago Palms


Anonymous added on March 11, 2011 | Answered

I have numerous sago palms planted in large potting containers around my home. We also have many of the sago palms planted in the yard landscape. I live close to the US Gulf Coast, but we recently had ice and a freeze that caused the palm branches to turn brown. What do I need to do to revive the green color back into the plants? Do all of the brown branches need to be removed?

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