Methods and systems for supporting efficient load balancing among a plurality of switches and a plurality of end nodes arranged in a tree topology in a network environment. The methods and systems can sort the plurality of end nodes, wherein the plurality of end nodes are sorted in a decreasing order of a receive weight. The method and system may further route, in the decreasing order of receive weights, the plurality of end nodes, wherein the routing comprises selecting at least one down-going port and at least one up-going port. Further, the method and system can increase an accumulated downward weight on each selected down-going port by the receive weight of the routed end node, and increase an accumulated upward weight on each selected up-going port by the receive weight of the routed end node
