When one will be stacked above the other you cannot just add the  wind loads.
The upper one puts much more bending force on the tower then  the lower one.
You probably have to lower it during high winds or support  it with guying.

        Guying it won't be helpful.  You can only guy the bottom section but 
the failure point will be in the  un-guyed upper 1/3 or so of the tower, not 
the bottom section.
