Hello,
Is there an accepted way to convey, for regression trees, something
akin to R-squared?
I'm developing regression trees for a continuous y variable and I'd
like to say how well they are doing. In particular, I'm analyzing the
results of a simulation model having highly non-linear

Why not use R-squared itself for your purposes?
Just get the fitted values from however you do the fit, and compute
R-squared from the basic
