Pygmy date nut care

It was damaged badly from this past winter. 2 of the 3 trunks have come back beautifully but the third has not sprouted the first branch. Any suggestions?

You may have lost that trunk to cold damage. You are in zone 9a and date palms are hardy in zone 10 but widely planted in 9b. You are right on the edge of hardiness.
I would remove the damaged/dead trunk if possible.
