[Haskell-cafe] Trying to implement this code

Hi im new to Haskell (really just learning).

Im trying to code a function to take in a List of Strings (e.g.) [apple, orange,
banana, orange, apple, orange] , and create 
a binary search tree containing the Strings and integers (where the integers are
the number of occurrences of each word.
I then wish to use this to output the number of words that are repeated and the
maximum number of repetitions. (e.g.) in the example above the output would be:

2 words repeated
Max number of 3 repetitions

Because apple and orange are the two that are repeated and orange is repeated
three times.

Any help would be appreciated, thankyou
