Comparison of (phylogenetic) trees

Hi folks,

if you get phylogenetic or at least distance-matrix trees of the same
organisms 
from two different sources, is there a way to compare these trees resulting
in a
statement like: both trees are identical/non-identical considdering a
confidence
interval of 90%? I know the Consensus program in Phylip. Is there a value
or a
matrix that gives the (relative) distance of the consensus tree to the
individual 
trees?

Or how can you copare distance matrix tables?

Thank you for your reply. I appreaciate any suggestion.
