What to Do With Frost Bitten Sago Palm

Anonymous added on February 14, 2011 | Answered

We have a large Sago Palm that we have had for about 8 years. We live in Louisiana. This winter we had a hard freeze (16 degrees) and five inches of snowfall. Now, all of the fronds are brown. What do you recommend?

I would wait until spring to cut back the plant. But, you will need to remove only the brown fronds (or yellow) as they will not come back. Do not remove green fronds. These articles will help you as well:
