treeSum Nil = 0
treeSum Node (s, subtrees) = s + sum (map treeSum subtrees)
More general you may define
data GTree a = Nil | Node a [Gtree a]

accumTree : (a -> b -> b) -> b -> Gtree a -> b
accumTree f init Nil = init
accumTree f init Node x ts = let rs = map accumTree f init ts
                                 r = foldl f init rs
				 in foldl f init [x, r]

sumTree = accumTree + 0
