[R] bifurcation countings in a cluster dendrogram

Dear R helpers,
I am quite new working with R, and that might be a very easy question for some of you. So I hope you can help me!! I used a hirarchical cluster analysis to create dendrograms, like that:

hc <- hclust(dist(USArrests), "ave")
plot(hc, hang = -1)

Here I want to compare the number of bifurcations for each species, but therefor I need this numbers first. There should be an elegant way to get this- instead of counting everything. I would be happy if you could tell me the solution!!!!
Thanks a lot in advance!!!
Yvonne Fabian
