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.
