There are no 'other trees'.  There is only one BIG tree.

I think the short answer is it depends upon where they are in the chain of ancestors and descendants in that branch

They cannot be obliterated, deleted, destroyed, however.

Gary, on WikiTree we are all sharing one big tree, with one profile per person. As Susan said, you can disconnect an ancestor from your individual branch, but they will still remain.  Others may review the details and sources for that profile and connect them to ancestors or descendants. For example, someone related to Clarissa's sister Zilpha United States Census, 1860", database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8LW-QKW : 19 March 2020), J L Holman, 1860.

As Kay says, there is no problem unlinking if the link did not exist.

There is a really great video series on how WikiTree works. I think it should get more attention.

This one really makes clear how profiles and the tree interact.
