Sago Palms Frost Damaged


Anonymous added on March 27, 2011 | Answered

The very cold winter along the Gulf Coast this year caused my Sago palms to brown from the top down (due to extended below-freezing periods). Should I remove these light brown fronds now or wait until new fronds come up?

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:
