You can remove the dead fronds but you can't reduce the height of your palms. They will continue to grow upward until they've reached their maximum potential. Cut the dead fronds off with a tree saw, leaving a few inches of the stem attached to the trunk. The remainder of the stem will dry up and eventually fall off the trunk.
