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.
