Trimming a Yucca

I have had my yucca for almost¬†seven years, and in the past, have trimmed the dead stalk leaves in the spring without issue. This year, however, all of the leaves look terrible. ¬†They are crusty and dead. If it weren’t for a few small patches of green leaves here and there, I would think the entire plant was dead. Can I cut the whole plant down to the ground without permanent damage? Will the leaves grow back as if I trimmed them individually?
