Honey Locust tree

I have a 10 year old Honey Locust Tree that we MOVED away from the house last year. It did OK last summer - but this year it visibly only has leaves on one side of the branches.

There is a lot of low NEW growth on the main stem and branches - should I cut this off to force growth on the higher branches or just let it run its course?

I have heard two schools of thought on this. My gut is to cut it off but people are saying no for this type of tree.

What do you say?

Yeah, pic needed for this one. Not at all sure what you're getting at when you say lots of new growth on main stem and branches.

In any case, since it was moved, some roots were lost. It's possible that the top damage you are reporting stems from that, pun intended. But give us something to look at.
