Fixing a "topped" young maple tree

Christy Fitzgerald

I made the mistake of buying an Autumn Blaze maple from an online company last September ('21). The tree was topped before shipping. Over a year later I'm left with multiple branches vying for that role and none are good. They are all growing at too wide an angle from the trunk. I am in no hurry to do anything, but I also don't want to miss a window when it's best to begin a process of fixing this thing. I welcome and appreciate any help and advice you all might have.
