Here is another trident maple stump. I believe I am going to chop the right side of this tree off in the spring. But before I do this I would like to see what others think.

I would leave both trunks and keep that " Y " look.

I would also keep both trunks for the time being because the tree is interesting from all sides and you'll end up with a "naturalistic" type of tree. If you really want a single trunk I think pic 5 will do because you have a very strong nebari there.

I got to go against the grain here....the two trunks compete with each other. Not enough size diversity between the two. Personal inclination would be to chose the trunk that is bigger and has more movement.

No photoshop here...so here's a crappy rendering (with MS paint) of what I see as a possibility.

Agreed. Without a doubt.
