    Yes its called DONT TOP TREES. The proper method for pruning is called Drop Crotch pruning. Remove limbs to a lateral that will assume dominance. Normally that means the lateral has to be atleast 1/3 the size of the limb being removed. The "Gillion tops" is the trees response to what you have done. It is replacing leaf area that you remove.
