I wouldn´t do that. There are other ways to get shorter needles.

Depends on the size age and maturity of the tree. If it is a young tree it wound be inappropriate treatment as the tree is growing. If the needles are two or more years old then they can be pulled off completely.. Not knowing more means that more advice is not possible, including the country you are in.
