You can use "Merge two different trees" if you want to make trunk exactly
equal to the branch. If trunk has changed at all after you made the branch
then you are better merging the changes from the branch back into trunk
using "Merge a range of revisions". If you use the 2-tree merge then any
changes you made to trunk after the branch will be thrown away.

That is the problem. You need From:My trunk To: My_Branch

The manual explains why:

But I would still recommend using the "range of revisions" in most cases.
Read the merge chapter to find out more.
