Active Directory External Trust remove option grayed out

Hello Experts,

There is a setup of two separate windows domain in two different forest. One domain has to be decommissioned, since that operations have closed.

There is two way external trust between the two domains. My question is

1. Is it required to remove the trust prior to demoting the DC, if yes why?
2. I tried removing the trust from the domains and trust console, but the remove option has been grayed out.... tried running the console as administrator, but same issue. .. what is netdom switch to remove the trust....

Thanks in advance
