Armstrong nursery says that I can remove one of the trunks of the tree without damaging the tree. I just want to confirm what your thoughts are. This tree is in Temecula Ca.

If the trees are young and healthy it should be OK to separate them. If the tree is mature it may not survive the separation. Do it when the tree is dormant to help prevent disease and insect injury.
