Donald Duck has a model train and town laid out in his yard. He decides to move a live tree that doesn't match the model scale, not realizing it is home to chipmunks Chip and Dale. They in turn move into one of the miniature houses.
This short was most likely inspired by the model train layouts that several of the animators had. Walt Disney himself had a miniature train that he could ride on, and even laid track around the studio lot for his miniature engine.
Possibly a deliberate sight gag, Donald is out of scale in several scenes despite his obsession with accuracy.
