    I implemented something like this in a [pre xgboost boosting framework]( ~10 years ago and it worked well.

    It isn't even that much of a speed hit using the classical sorting CART implementation. However xgboost and ligthgbm use histogram based approximate sorting which might be harder to adapt in a performant way. And certainly the code will be a lot messier.

    The best method i've seen for dealing with this bias is to create "artificial contrasts" by including possibly many permutated copies of each feature and then doing a statistical test of the random forest importance values for each feature vs its shuffled contrasts. This method is described here: and there is an implementation here:
