I was just wondering how can I keep palm trees from freezing here in the winter if I have to worry about that?

Queen Palms are hardy to about 20F which is lower than your typical winter temperatures. However, if a real cold snap threatens you'll want to protect the very top of the palm, where new growth emerges. There are products such as "Cloud Cover" you can apply to your palm or you can throw a insulating blanket over the top of the palm. This won't be too difficult to do when your palm is young, but as it gets taller it might be a real challenge!
