I agree with Joe and Treefarmer, the rule of thumb is not to prune more
than 50% of the total stem any one year,  until you reach that
merchantable length you want.  Obviously, this gives a few years between
prunnings to allow for growth.  On fast growing species you may benefit
from pruning past the first log.
