One way to use the current radial field would be to erect a 30 foot piece of 
freestanding  aluminum tube right in the center of the radial field and connect 
a wire to the top of the short vertical for the remaining length. The wire will 
have to slant away from the radial field but a substantial part of the antenna 
, carrying significant current, will be vertical.

This is the approach I use on my 80 meter elevated ground plane. The first 23 
feet is aluminum tubing and the remaining 44 feet slants toward limb on a very 
tall 85 foot dead ash tree. It works very well.
