Q.Should I Prune Top Leaves of Sago Palm That Are Brown?

lovesglass54 added on April 10, 2011 | Answered

We have a sago palm and the top leaves always turn brown after the winter.   The bottom ones are the ones that are turning green. I looked on your website about pruning and it only mentions about trimming bottom leaves. So what should I do?

You can go ahead and cut off the brown fronds, but only those as they do not grow back. Do not cut the green ones.
