Pruning green branches off sago palm

Zone San Ramon CA | mmmdave added on April 18, 2016 | Answered

Is ok to prune some of the lowest rows of green branches off a healthy sago? The plant has grown to be huge, but none of the bottom branches ever turn brown. It just keeps growing new ones from the top. I'd like to eventually see the trunk though. :-)

Your Sago Palm must be very healthy and happy!
Removing leaves and fronds is not recommended.
You would be removing the Palms source of food and risk the health of your palm.
