Sago Palms

Anybody here familiar with pruning Sago Palms. I have a prop that just had some installed to replace ones that were stolen and the palms are hanging over into the sidewalk. I'm not sure if I can just trim the ends or should they be cut at the ball.

Thanks in advance for any help

I have had sagos growing out over walkways or porches in the past that I have repositioned in the same location to redirect the growth. Often times you will barely need to move the plant, you can spin it, or just lean it a little and palms are one of the few plants that don't look bad when leaning. I have on many occasions cut all the fronds from frost damaged sagos and they have always come back. As far as when to do it, the only difference between doing now or in the next two months would be appearance. Would your client rather look at a completely trimmed up crown, or a bunch of dead fronds?
