We have two Sago Palms in our front yard that are a few years old. This winter has been unusally cold (Inverness, Florida) and they have 'burned' from the cold. One is totally a golden yellow and the other one is partially yellowed. This never happened before, so I didn't think to cover them at night. Are they totally dead, or can they come back to life with proper care, whatever that may be?

But you will need to remove only the yellow and brown fronds in the spring, as they will not come back. Do not remove green fronds. These articles will help you as well:
