    Worrking from 'below the canopy of the umbrella'  I would just take out any old, damaged or crossing branches, removing them from the centre of the canopy,  and then I would remove the tips of any branches touching the ground.  I would then stand back and identify any branches spoiling the outline or symmetry. 

    Apart from that I'd leave it alone.   :)
