Can you include a photo so that I can see what you are referring to? If this was a cluster of palms, then it will be no problem to cut. If this was a single palm that branched, then it could pose some threat of infection, but this can be overcome by rubbing the cut area with straight peroxide solution (the standard 3% kind) once a day. This will clean it and keep it sterile and free from infection.
