Q.I Need to Know How to Prune My Sago Palm
We moved to the NC coast and sagos normally live outside in this area but we had a very cold winter and all my leaves are dead. The plant appears alive (not mushy or rotten), and I need to know if I can prune them all off and save this plant. It is in a pot and about 2 ft. tall.

You will need to remove the dead growth (yellow and brown fronds), but only those, as they will not come back. Do not remove green growth. These articles will help you as well:
It is hard to say how well they will grow back. Sago palms do not deal well with lost fronds, but they have been known to recover fine. It will take it some time to recover, if it does at all.
