I have seen several freeze damaged palm trees in the central Texas area this year after the relatively cold winter. Now that spring is here, it is a great time to start getting them back into shape. Now that the damage has been done, the first thing you need to do is prune all of the dead fronds from the tree. Sometimes, this means removing all fronds from the tree. A fairly accurate test to assess the extent of the damage is too gently tug on a leaf newly emerging from the trunk.
