No, there isn't an easy way. If they were two separate clades, you could do it within the text file by copying and pasting the tree description, but if the extinct are scattered, I don't see an easy way.

I've been wracking my brains trying to figure out how I can merge/combine/copy-and-paste my trees together in Mesquite into one big tree, but have not as yet had any success. I presume there is an easy way of doing this?
