I have two trees. I want to compare them to a third tree, to see which of the two is more similar to the third one. is there an easy way to do it? thanks!

I like using the compare function of the ete3 toolkit.

You can measure the Robinson-Foulds metric for each tree vs every other tree and see which one has the lower RF value.

This question has been asked a few times on the forum BTW, so try using the search bar to find previous threads - it should be pretty simple.
