Sago Palm Trees

Sago Palm

Anonymous added on May 30, 2014 | Answered

I have a 10 year old sago palm, female, which flowered a year ago. Since then the ball of kernels have just sat on the crown and slowly deteriorated and many of the leaves have turned yellowish. Should I cut the remnants of the flower off and trim the leaves back? I have seen several sago palms in the Houston area pruned back to the trunk, but that seems rather drastic! Is that normal practice after flowering?
