  • In this paper, we introduce a simple local flux recovery for $ \mathcal{Q}_k $ finite element of a scalar coefficient diffusion equation on quadtree meshes, with no restriction on the irregularities of hanging nodes. The construction requires no specific ad hoc tweaking for hanging nodes on $ l $-irregular ($ l\geq 2 $) meshes thanks to the adoption of virtual element families. The rectangular elements with hanging nodes are treated as polygons as in the flux recovery context. An efficient a posteriori error estimator is then constructed based on the recovered flux, and its reliability is proved under common assumptions, both of which are further verified in numerics.
