Hello Emeka,

from what you posted your issue lies here: javac java.TreeStory

To compile you need to tell the console the file name, which is "TreeStory.java", so it seems you inadvertantly flipped around the file extension to the front which gives you the error.

Okay. Wow. I will adjust to these corrections today. Thanks a lot Michael
