more pictures from different angles would provide US with more options.

I agree that more pics would help, but I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't chop it at the first branch. I kinda like what I can see of the trunk. You might want to consider taking this OUT of its bonsai pot and putting it into something larger -- maybe 6 inches deep by 12 inches in diameter -- then letting it grow, trimming it back, letting it grow, trimming it back for a couple of years to see what else sprouts on that trunk.

iv been thinking a "little" Embarassed and this is what came to my mind... (just a thought)



1-bring down this branch so to be parallel with the lower branch
2-bend up about half of this branch
3-i will let this 2 little branch grow up then choose as apex or i could use both and make a sort of canopy/another 2 branches, 1 for each side Very Happy

i know someone out there has better ideas...
