Q.Is My Sago Palm Dead?

Zone 76028 | RHSago1971 added on March 31, 2022 | Answered

My Sago Palm was a victim of extreme cold 12 months ago and appears to be dead but it still has live pups attached to the bottom. I removed several pups to transplant and was inspecting the large palm. I grabbed the top and the pieces started coming off easily leaving a solid core inside. Does this mean the main plant is completely dead? I hear that they can go dormant for quite some time and to not give up on them but I want to make sure before I cut it down and make way for its large baby behind it.

It would benefit those pups to remove the dead Sago. Unfortunately, your photos did not come through, but from the description- It seems dead.
