Sago Palm Pruning

Anonymous added on November 14, 2011 | Answered

We live in southern Georgia and have a sago palm that is approximately 6 feet tall, and obscuring our view. I would like to cut it back a couple of feet. Is this possible? Can you cut it back at the stalk? All the leaves but the top 2 feet have been removed.

For your situation though, you may want to consider stripping the lower fronds so that they do not block the line of sight. If you have not read it, here is an article on pruning sago palms:
