Coloring Tree Branches in R

Ali Oghabian marks up a tree:

After running Hierarchical clustering we can cut the result binary tree at a certain depth or request that it be cut in a manner that would result a certain number of clusters. Here, I request that the resulted binary tree be cut in away that would result to 2 sample clusters. Furthermore, I convert the resulted tree to a “dendogram” object and colour the branches and the labels of the tree to visualize the 2 clusters. One can use color_branches and color_labels functions to cut and colour the trees.
