Your photo is not good enough to see the 2 small palm trees. Are they syagrus romanzofiana or archontophoenix?
Anyway, you have to use fungicide on your palms and wait for hot temperatures. Don't cut the leaves until summer.
Even the 2 small can regrow, if there is one inch of green...

I am a portuguese friend of palms, since I got a new home and needed to buid a landscape.
I have some cocos plumosa, and archontophoenix alexandrae.
The weather here is not so good as in other places in wich you live, but we have temperatures, medium, betwen 5 and 25 degrees.
In Winter, sometimes we have -5 degrees, and this winter we got there, and my specimes became almost totaly burn. Two small have the center burn, and i thing they wont recover, but another bigger has few parte green, however the new part growing is burn at the top. I dont know what to do, must i have some special care? I will wait for the spring effects. I will upload some fotos later

As you can see here: http://www.palmtalk....showtopic=20979, this new palm seems to be a cunninghamiana.
However, do your advisements remain valid to this palm?
May i cover the crown shaft Walt?
Peachy, its so curious, i was looking for a cunninghamiana, and i just had one in my yard!
Here are some photos of my palm.

Peachy: as i told, my a. cunninghamiana is east side planted, and must remain there. Next spring i will bring another and put it at west side.
Walt: but the new spear must not be covered, as i understood, right?

Walt, please, should i protect on rainy nights too ?
And should the protection be put only at night, and removed on the begginning of the day?

I cannot add anything to the advice you have already received, but post freeze fungicide cannot be stressed too much! Brands like Subdue Maxx & Aliette WDG are the broadest spectrum fungicides and are the most effective for me in saving palms from cold damage.
They are systemic which is helpful (especially on larger specimen trees.) They should be available where growers' chemicals are sold in your area.
Best wishes for a good Christmas Holiday, Rafael!
