Oregon White Oak - Quercus Garryana - Long term advice

I was gifted this weirdo. What the heck is even going on here? Any suggestions to help it in the long term to prosper and maybe look more beautiful and less… Weird? I mean, I love it, but my imagination is lacking and I could really use some suggestions.

Ooh that’s a tough one. You could wrap those roots around a rock for the start of a root over rock. You’d probably want to bury it deeper in soil so as to hopefully produce some more feeder roots.

It looks like a young Ent to me! Embrace its weirdness.
