That seems unusual. Wouldn't you want to make one a subtree of the
other? You really want to merge them so that their root directories are
a combination of the contents of both trees?

An empty branch doesn't have a root, so it doesn't have a root id. But
you can set the root ID of the WorkingTree associated with a branch.
