Allen, it is important that you prune these trees correctly for good fruit production. Why do you want to cut 5 feet off the tree? Perhaps you should remove the tree and plant one on a dwarfing rootstock if you need a smaller tree.
I would suggest you look at fruit tree information from your cooperative extension service.
