I will have to agree with the above postings.
First get rid of all the dead/diseased wood.
Second should be thinning. Cut out criss crossing, rubbing, or reaching branches(branches coming from the opposing side) don't forget to follow the 1/3 rule but it only applies to live wood, if its dead it should be considered gone.
