Recursive Get Tree Size

I need a small recursive method able to return a given multigrade tree size (the number of items contained in it), every node has several children. This other method returns the tree height, I place it as an example so you can figure out the structure of the tree.
public int getHeight(int height, Element element, int maxHeight){
      if(height > maxHeight)
        maxHeight = height;
      int i=0;
      for(i = 0; i < element.getNumChildren(); i++)
        return getHeight(height+1,element.getChild(i),maxHeight);
    return maxHeight;

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This counts all nodes (not only leaves):

public int getSize(Element element) {
  int i, size=1;
  for(i = 0; i < element.getNumChildren(); i++)
  return size;
