Weather Related…Sago Palm
I live in Texas and this year we had a freeze for about 3 or 4 days in a row. My sago palm (25 years old) was affected in that all stems turned yellow and died. What do I do with this? If I cut them off, will new come out?

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 helpyou as well:
Itis hard to say how well they will grow back. Sago palms do not deal well with lost fronds, but they have been known to recover fine. I would wait a whole season to see if fronds grow back.
