I am stuck on this one. Can anyone help?

Use a method to set the TAG variable instead of hard-coding the class name as "TreehouseActivity". We want just the class name by itself without the package name: is it getName() or getSimpleName()? Change the "TreehouseActivity" string to the correct method call (ex. TreehouseActivity.class.).

com/teamtreehouse/TreehouseActivity.java
package com.teamtreehouse;

public class TreehouseActivity extends Activity {

  public static final String TAG = "TreehouseActivity";

  @Override
  public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_treehouse);
    Log.d(TAG,"Activity created!");
    public static final String TAG = TreehouseActivity.class.getSimpleName();
  }
}

You've repeated your TAG.

Swap the first one

public static final String TAG = "TreehouseActivity";

with

public static final String TAG = TreehouseActivity.class.getSimpleName();

and remove that one from your onCreate()

The second one is never used.
