Store One Category
      Category 1
         Sub Category 1
         Sub Category 2
      Category 2
         Sub Category 1
         Sub Category 2

Store Two Category

Here, I got solve for this question.

    require_once 'app/Mage.php';
    $categories  = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load('id')->getChildrenCategories(); //here id of category which you want to copy categories.

    $parentCategory = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load('id'); //here id of category which you want to paste categories.
    foreach ($categories as $category) 
        echo $category->getId()."<br>";
        $collection = $category->getProductCollection();
        $category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($category->getId());

        $copy = clone $category;

        foreach ($collection as $product) 
           $cate = $product->getCategoryIds();
           $cate[] = $parentCategory->getId();
           $cate[] = $copy->getId();
        echo $copy->getId()."<br>";
