You have to prune them yourself, but you can do it in the same run as the 
sausage building, e.g.,

lattice-tool -read-htk -fast-prune -posterior-prune 1e-3 -posterior-decode ...


lattice-tool -read-htk -fast-prune -posterior-prune 1e-3 -write-mesh-dir ...

See the order of processing steps in the lattice-tool(1) man page.
