Given a TreeSet in Java, task is to sort elements of TreeSet in Descending Order (descreasing order).

Input : Set: [2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 20]
Output : Set: [20, 10, 7, 5, 3, 2]

Input : Set: [computer, for, geeks, hello]
Output : Set: [hello, geeks, for, computer]

To make a TreeSet Element in decreasing order, simple use descendingSet() method which is used to change the order of TreeSet in reverse order
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 


// Java Program to print TreeSet in reverse Order
import java.util.TreeSet;
public class TreeSetDescending
    public static void main(String[] args)
        // Declare a treeset
        TreeSet<Object> ints = new TreeSet<Object>();
        // Initialize treeset with
        // predefined set in reverse order
        // using descendingSet()
        TreeSet<Object> intsReverse =
        // Print the set
        System.out.println("Without descendingSet(): " +
        System.out.println("With descendingSet(): " +


Without descendingSet(): [2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 20]
With descendingSet(): [20, 10, 7, 5, 3, 2]
