Wow, that is some unusual material!

I honestly don't know what I would do with something like that but I'm sure there's an interesting tree hiding in there somewhere.

Good luck with this challenging project and please update us as it develops.

Regards

and a repot angle change laying it down to the right...

I was thinking of Larix #9, (although I see now that you have several very nice larch). 

Nice dead wood and a very interesting top.

The material looks like a great candidate for the candelabra style, many conifers/Spruce grow like this in the mountains, it occurs when the main trunk dies off and a branch grows up to form a new main trunk, would Jin both tops and do this,

This is the right direction as well as the Potter video as a guideline. This is kind of typical of the way Spruce grow.

I agree with all of You, Guys! Smile
The tree has same thickness from bottom to the top.
It's not looking natural.

I left branches only for vitality and grow. Meanwhile trying to do something with it...
So future for it is cut and go by yours idea Smile
