As far as I know, you can only work on one tree (database) at a time.

This question has been asked, and answered, a number of times in the
last eighteen months or so. Have you had a look at the list archives?
Bear in mind, if you're considering splitting a tree, that two trees
require more input and maintenance than one, and are likely to become
inconsistent. And should they have no individuals in common, they will
likely still have common sources, places, repositories, web pages,
Databases were invented to handle large datasets.
