We show that valuations on the ring R of holomorphic germs in dimension 2 may be naturally evaluated on plurisubharmonic functions, giving rise to generalized Lelong numbers in the sense of Demailly. Any plurisubharmonic function thus defines a real-valued function on the set V of valuations on R and - by way of a natural Laplace operator defined in terms of the tree structure on V - a positive measure on V. This measure contains a great deal of information on the singularity at the origin. Under mild regularity assumptions, it yields an exact formula for the mixed Monge-Ampere mass of two plurisubharmonic functions. As a consequence, any generalized Lelong number can be interpreted as an average of valuations. Using our machinery we also show that the singularity of any positive closed ( 1, 1) current T can be attenuated in the following sense: there exists a finite composition of blowups such that the pull-back of T decomposes into two parts, the first associated to a divisor with normal crossing support, the second having small Lelong numbers.
