Good evening, I will show the evolution of juniper purchased from a nursery last year and now

I would consider converting the upper half to a smaller jin and just going with the lower part. Having the apex start from lower then the first branch doesn't really work for me.

I say to grow out the top with extra sacrifice branches until it it thicker than the first branch... Might take a while, but your current design is more dynamic than What would be left with just the first branch.

I second up with Bob. Right now is like dual/split trunk

I believe a more dynamic and older looking tree will be the result if you remove the top left trunk; leave enough for a convincing jin and incorporate shari; more carving of the other deadwood is indicated.
Best,
Todd

I also agree with Bob and the others that the top should be reduced to a smaller jin and I would use the last picture as the front.

I like Bob's suggestion, but the others can work as well.

If it were my tree, at this point I would let it grow out for 2 or 3 years, continue to keep it wired, meaning, remove the wire when it begins to mark the trunk or branches, then re-wire to keep your shape. but before creating any more new jin, you need more green to keep the tree healthy. Letting it grow out a bit, without doing more than maybe one prune back session per year of undesirable, would be a good idea. Get some diameter to the trunks and lowest branches. Otherwise you will run into what I am still trying to correct in my own tree, which is now a 25+ year old thin stick in a pot.

You can keep working the already dead wood into more attractive appearance, but don't make new dead wood until you have a more robust, healthy tree.
