The technical phrase for two similar size trunks growing from the same root system is 'codominant' and though it may look innocuous, when it's a tree this size there will be weakness (caused by weight) at the point the two trunks join in the middle. The taller it grows, the heavier and therefore more dangerous it gets.

Luckily we were called-in before catastrophe struck and were able to first strip the smaller branches before reducing the tree completely. 

This was a very large tree and could have caused considerable damage if allowed to grow unchecked.
