Why is it "for( Treet...)"

As far as I know, for loop starts with the type, for example "for (String str : arr)", but here in the for loop starts with the class Treet and I don't understand why

Every class is also a type. The name of the class is also the type of any of its instances.

So when do you need to use the class as the type instead of just using "String" and vice-versa? And is it common to use both concepts in actual coding?

You pick the type based on what you are going to do with the object. If it just holds text, you'd likely use a "String", But if it holds (for example) a set of student records, you'd probably use a "StudentInfo" class (assuming one had been defined already).
