The following example shows the usage of java.util.TreeSet.pollFirst() method.

import java.util.TreeSet;

public class TreeSetDemo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      // creating a TreeSet 
      TreeSet <Integer>treeadd = new TreeSet<Integer>();
     
      // adding in the tree set
      treeadd.add(1);
      treeadd.add(13);
      treeadd.add(17);
      treeadd.add(2);
     
      // retrieve and remove the first element
      System.out.println("First element is: "+treeadd.pollFirst());
      
      // create iterator
      Iterator iterator;
      iterator = treeadd.iterator();
     
      // displaying the Tree set data
      System.out.println("Tree set data after removing: ");     
      while (iterator.hasNext()){
         System.out.println(iterator.next() + " ");
      }
   }     
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result.

First element is: 1
Tree set data after removing: 
2
