Sago Palm Got Frost Bite

My sago palm got frost bite this winter. Should I trim it back or just wait? The ball is still green and looks like new shoots are forming.

I would wait until spring to cut back the plant. It will help protect the new growth, just in case another frost/freeze occurs. But you will need to remove the yellow and brown fronds only, as they will not come back. Do not remove green fronds. These articles will help you as well:
