The treble stitch is a double crochet with an extra yarn over. This will make the stitch taller. The stitch is also known as the Triple Crochet.
You will work 4 turning chains at the beginning of a row. Depending on the crochet pattern, the turning chains are counting as the first stitch.
You will see the symbol of the Treble which is used in crochet charts on the left side. The abbreviation of the treble stitch is TR.
