Basically you need to find two nodes which are same to start with. And then call the isDuplicate(root1, root2) method on both. This exhaustive traversal is worst case matching of each node with each node and then isIdentical is O(n). Hence the overall complexity is O(n3)
Now any two subtrees can be duplicate only if one is not ancestor of other.
