Leaves down trunk
The tree was topped. When this drastic cut is done, the tree is attempting to put out more leaf area to compensate for the huge amount lost to the topping job. This is a bad arboriculture practice. See more here: https://www.treesaregood.org/portals/0/docs/treecare/WhyToppingHurts.pdf
If desired, the low shoots may be pruned off.
Hope this helps.
