The top branches are thicker than the bottom, so you may need to regrow them, but a really nice trunk to work with. Should make a really nice tree. What a Face

The best of the three plants. Nice trunk!

Again, pics from all sides will be helpful. You probably will end up removing some (or all) of those branches. Some of the ones up top are too large for that high in the tree. Some of the lower ones grew out at odd angles that wold be hard to fix. These are prolific backbudders if the tree is healthy.

This is just my opinion, but I think the bottom half of the tree is better looking that the top half. There's some reverse taper going on, and the branching is a bit helter skelter. I feel that some of the branches, like the lowest one on the right should be removed. It's really drawing my eye away from the rest of the tree. And try to get that leader to branch off into a few directions. When you look at older deciduous trees, the apex is usually diffused into many smaller branches with form a domed shape.
