Pine after pruning branches and thinning of the densest areas. The two branches of the right are much smaller than cut, and finally, the one at the front (hopefully) be a solid fundamental branch. The bottom is longer and is actually a branch again. So it will take some years to develop a compelling, full, primary branch.
