Classification Tree Algorithm? Spotfire Analyst

I have a question about the default "Classification Tree" model that's available in Spotfire Analyst 7.10.

Does it have an equivalent package in R?  Is there any documentation I can refer to (Google wasn't helpful)?

I'm new to machine learning; am familar with random forests, xgboost, adaboost, and a few others.  The Spotfire function "treeClassFit" is unfamilar.  I'd like to know if there are pros/cons to using the default classification (very easy) vs. importing packages via TERR (scripted).
