If you are confident that the branch is exactly what you want, then
just go to the SVN Repository view in Subclipse. Right-click on trunk
and use the Delete option to commit a delete of trunk. Then
right-click on the Branch you want and use the Branch/Tag option to
copy the branch and give it the URL of trunk as the target. This will
recreate the trunk folder. From the command line:

svn rm -m "Delete trunk" url://server/repos/trunk
svn cp -m "Recreate trunk" url://server/repos/branches/branch

Might want to switch your branch working copy to trunk when you are done.
