    first the angle between the tree and the horizintal ground = 90-8 =82 at the triangle made by the tree and the distance of the measuring piont and the base of the tree and the distance between the measuring piont and the top of the tree we have two known angles that are the elevation angle and the angle between the tree and the ground and w also have known side lenght so we con calculate the length of the tree
