Pruning a lemon tree.

Hi,

I have a lemon tree that is probably 12 - 14 feet tall in my backyard and reaches the electric wires going over it. I'm thinking to prune it down, but I wonder how I should go.

Reading some threads, I understand the small inward and crossing braches should go, but how about the main trunk ?

The thing is the main trunk shoots up to that high and i would like to cut it short to 10 feet or so. Is there any problem to do so ?
