#' @param tree a tree of class \code{phylo} or \code{phylo4}. The tree should be binary and rooted; if not it will be coerced into a binary rooted tree using multi2di, if possible.
#' @param mainCol colour for edges which are not ladders (default is black)
#' @param ladderEdgeCol colour for ladder edges (default is red)
#' @param ladderNodeCol colour for ladder nodes (default is red)
#' @param ... further arguments to be passed to plot.phylo
#' 
#' @return A plot of the tree, with ladder edges and nodes highlighted by colour.
