I can see a semi-cascade as a possibility, ...but can we see the other sides?

Still looks like a nice curvy informal upright candidate to me...I see a few branches on the outside of curves, and nicely tapering trunk line.

Maybe I missed something... I see lots of branches, tertiary branches, apex, etc., all needing wire.

And, I agree with Brian.  Informal upright.

I'm not very experienced but I think if you removed the longer/lower branch and just kept the shorter but more upright branch you could just start over from there and have a pretty good informal.

Don't remove the lowest branch!

Shorten it, maybe, but for sure don't remove it!.

If you don't like it, send it to me.  I'll fix it.

Looks like it could use some pinching back and needle pulling all around, but I like the trunk line and branch structure you have as it is.

If you did not remove the one branch then what would you do to this tree? Make a cascade,  bend the lower branch around or leave it just as is and grow additional branches to further style it with? Just wondering, maybe I can learn something new.
My brain is like a sieve most information just runs straight through but some of the big chunks seem to stick. LOL

Don't remove the branch.  I would approach graft the folliage to the base of the branch and restart the pad, since the tree just got a lot smaller.  What does the nebari look like?  I think it will be a nice informal upright.

Cheers,
Alex

Granted, that lowest branch is kind of heavy ,but it could work in the design.  Wiring it down, and cutting back to stong interior bud/branches will stimulate more back budding.

Don, you want all the low branches you can get on pines, as a general rule.

Thanks Adair
I've got one JBP with with 6 or 7 branches at the base. I used a couple to approach graft missing upper branches.
