As you appear to be fairly new to photography, try the old tried and true method, Focus and recompose.
Using the centre focusing spot, stand clear of the branches and focus on the area you want in focus by half pressing the exposure button. While continuing to hold the exposure button (to lock focus), move over to the composition you want, then press the exposure button down fully.
There are many variations of this method and many will claim there are better methods. There are but they are much more complex and it depends on what you are phtographing. This is how it was done since the year dot! Perfect this Focus and recompose method then learn the other more technical methods.
