All visual gain - no loss - whatever you may have removed. Much better and I reckon a bit more weight can be taken from top too ... but all in due course ... and I am not saying flatten or dome in that comment - rather just taking some further mass out with create even more balance and definition, I reckon.

Again - all in good time - excellent progress today. Thanks for the update.

Two things I would add..
A pointed top conveys a young tree. A curved trunk conveys an old tree. Very old.
You can't make the trunk straight (young tree) so....
Also, the mass is to large for the trunk so I would thin it drastically...
