No, you don't need to do anything locally.

Say you are currently at revision 100.

You meant to branch at revision 50.

You simply need to copy trunk@r50 to branch
Then merge from 50-100 from trunk to the branch.
Then reverse merge / delete all revisions 50-100 in the trunk.

Subversion won't really erase the changes once you reverse merge them.
