Leaf-Similar Trees

Consider all the leaves of a binary tree, from left to right order, the values of those leaves form a leaf value sequence.

For example, in the given tree above, the leaf value sequence is (6, 7, 4, 9, 8).

Two binary trees are considered leaf-similar if their leaf value sequence is the same.

Return true if and only if the two given trees with head nodes root1 and root2 are leaf-similar.

Example 1:

Input: root1 = [3,5,1,6,2,9,8,null,null,7,4], root2 = [3,5,1,6,7,4,2,null,null,null,null,null,null,9,8]
Output: true

Example 2:

Input: root1 = [1,2,3], root2 = [1,3,2]
Output: false


  • The number of nodes in each tree will be in the range [1, 200].
  • Both of the given trees will have values in the range [0, 200].


# Definition for a binary tree node.
# class TreeNode:
#     def __init__(self, val=0, left=None, right=None):
#         self.val = val
#         self.left = left
#         self.right = right
class Solution:
    def leafSeq(self, root):
        seq = []
        nodes = [root]
        while len(nodes) > 0:
            curr = nodes.pop()
            if curr:
                if not curr.left and not curr.right:
        return seq

    def leafSimilar(self, root1: Optional[TreeNode], root2: Optional[TreeNode]) -> bool:
        return self.leafSeq(root1) == self.leafSeq(root2)
