Seperating a Domain from a Forest

Here is my current setup

Here goes:
Production Domain

Schema Owner: Production01.productiondomain.com
Domain Role Owner: Production01.productionomain.com
PDC Role: Production01.productionomain.com
RID Pool manager: Production01.productionomain.com
Infrastructure Ower: Production01.productionomain.com

Corporate Domain

Schema Owner: Production01.productiondomain.com
Domain Role Owner: Production01.productionomain.com
PDC Role: Corporate01.corporatedomain.com
RID Pool manager: Corporate01.corporatedomain.com
Infrastructure Ower: Corporate01.corporatedomain.com

Productiondomain.com is the root domain of the forest, as a result the production01 domain controller is the "Chief" of the forest.

What I need to know is if there's a way to break the corporatedomain from the productiondomain's forest, and have it in it's own forest.

So basically Corporate01 needs the schema owner, and the domain naming master role, and productiondomain needs to stay exactly as is.

Thanks

No you cannot prune bits off a domain - all you can do is create a new seperate domain (and forest)
