Deng - here is some code to answer your question.

use Bio::Tree::Tree;
use Bio::TreeIO;

# get a tree somehow
# choose the subnodes for finding the lca somehow

# get the least common ancestor
my $node = $tree->get_lca( -nodes => \@nodes );

# build a new tree with its root at $node
my $subtree = Bio::Tree::Tree->new(-root => $node, -nodelete => 1);

my $out = Bio::TreeIO->new(-format=>'newick');
