Do I need to get my tonsils removed to prevent tonsil stones from forming?

In brief: Technically....

Yes.
However, that seems quite severe- your question implies either you have had tonsil stones that have been somehow removed, or you are concerned about having them form without initially having them. Discuss it thoroughly with your pcp or surgeon, to weigh the benefits vs the risks.
