# [R] Forcing ticks in plot for hclust object outside the limits

```Hello!

I have the following problem.

I would like to plot the hclust object "hcd" (bellow, at the end of the
mail) with ticks at seq(0.05,0.25,by=0.05). I tried using the code
plot(hcd)
and
plot(hcd,axes=FALSE)
axis(2,seq(0.05,0.25,by=0.05))

In both cases, the resoult is the same, ticks at 0.05 and 0.25 are not
printed. I tried changing the ylim argumet in plot, however I got a warning
"parameter "ylim" couldn't be set in high-level plot() function".

I would like to force those two ticks. Can this be done with axis or plot,
or should I use "lines"?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
