import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.util.Scanner;
public class fileapplet extends Applet
	public void paint(Graphics g)
		BufferedReader diskInput;
		String word;
                int a=0,b=0;  
			//reads in words from a file
      		diskInput = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(new FileInputStream("Tree.txt")));
			// file name is on command line
      		Scanner input=new Scanner(diskInput);
	     		while (input.hasNext()) 
        			word=word.toLowerCase(); // use lower case only

Your applet doesnt have permission to do read/write I/O.
You need to sing the applet or update your .java.policy file to give access permissions.

Thank you for your suggestion but I get exception "access denied ( Tree.txt write)" even after getting the applet signed. What must I do now. Please help.
