This is not easy to do with standard tooling. You might try Googling
around for 'svndumpfilter2' and 'svndumpfilter3', third-party scripts
that could offer better support of what you want. Other options include:

1. Take the trunk, too.

2. Take only the part of the the trunk you need (by stringing together
some svndumpfilter invocations to include the trunk but then exclude the
stuff in it you don't want).

3. Truncate the history of your branch -- essentially, do a
non-incremental dump starting from the revision in which the branch was
created.
