My 30 yr old palm bloomed for the first time this year. After blooms were gone the tree looks terrible. How can I get it to come back to life??

When my now 38 year old ponytail bloomed, it was about 13 feet tall and single stemmed. Living in zone 6, the plant was too large to bring back inside, so I cut it back to let it send out multiple stems. Four years later, it is prettier than ever with 8 stems and lots of foliage. Hope this helps.
