There are a number of issues to consider, try starting here to get a handle on trusts.
You will need to know the forest function level of the two forests.

Trusts are not the only way to share data, you might also like to consider Microsoft's Active Directory Federation Services, see here

Do you need to retain both forests or is this to aid a migration ?

Both of the suggestions I have made above, will result in changes to both forests, sufficient to warrant careful consideration. Neither of these suggestions are trivial in implementation or consequence, and I strongly recommend you read the documentation from the URLs I have posted above.

To answer your question directly,
Both suggestions are not intended to be a transitional state of forest consolidation, and are solutions by themselves.
