Sago Palm in a Freezing Cold Spell

Anonymous added on April 8, 2011 | Answered

We live in central Florida and had the coldest weather in 35 years. Our sago palms are approximately 2. 5 feet tall. All of the branches are brown from the freeze. Yet, in one plant a new set of fronds just opened up. Should I trim all the fronds up to the new level?

You will need to remove the yellow and brown fronds this spring, but only those, as they will not come back. Just use sharp shears to do so. Do not remove green parts of fronds. These articles will help you as well:
