When you cut, cut quite close to the nearest branch or trunk leaving just barely a "neck". Do not leave stumps as they will be a weak point on the tree and invite disease and insects. Remember that pruning off too much at any given time will probably stress your tree. So don't go "overboard".

Here is the web site for The Virtual Orchard "http://orchard.uvm.edu". There might be some additional information there which would be of help.
