Answer: There's a huge difference in the gardening zones between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The change might be too much for your Sago Palm, which is hardy only to about 15F. Las Vegas can be very cold in the winter and extremely hot in the summer where southern California has a mild climate all year round. Your Sago can reach 8'-10' so it's still a youngster and can probably be transplanted without difficulty, but I'd still recommend keeping it in southern California. If you decide to dig and transplant, do so in the cooler winter months and water well after replanting, providing about 1-inch of water per week throughout the growing season until the roots have had a chance to become established.
