How to determine area of leaf from tree? Easily and accurately. Which type of tree (shrub) is best for this? How much energy the tree used from sun to make sugar (day)?

Have you got any ideas? Thanks :-) And sorry for my bad English.

There is a concept: Leaf Area Index.

This paper discusses several methods for generating leaf area and the LAI, leaf area index for deciduous trees.
