I would like to know what best steps are there in finding differences between a high order amount of merkle tree's or if a better associative structure should be used.

I ask this questions because while i have found on comparing two trees for differences i have not found any specifics on comparing n amount at the same time (100-200 for ex).

While i would imagine a sequential validation process from one tree to the next, my question would be if there are any general way to do so.
