I'm using the ape library to import a tree of type newick format. This tree contains branch lengths. I'm interested in cutting the tree at t=1. The time starts from 0 up until t=2 (rooted node) for example. Is there an easy way to cut the tree at specific time and then extract those different subtrees generated. I'm using R and I could not find any function in ape that does that. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Update: Nevermind I was able to solve it. Convert the phylo tree to hclust and then use the function cutree.
