[R] Variable importance in Random Forests

How do I get what splits were used for the top important variables. For example, if my top most important variable is a continuous variable, e.g. previous 12 month sales, and its range is between $0 to $1M, how do I find what what were the split values for this variable that were used in the random forests algorithm? How do I achieve the same thing for a factor variable?

Thank you,
