I think I'd get rid of the tail, entirely, change the planting angle so the remainder is more upright, drastically thin the top and end up with a very nice bunjin with a great trunk. Background's too messy to do a virt.

Maybe with even fewer branches eventually. For now, this is as far as I would go. Bend the remaining branch up and around, following the poorly drawn red arrow.
