Let AC is the tree which break at B and the broken part AB become A’B.

In ΔA’BC,

BC/A’C = ten 30⁰

⇒ BC/8 = 1/√3

⇒ BC = 8/√3

and A’C/A’B = cos 30⁰

⇒ 8/A’B = √3/2 ⇒ A’B = 16/√3

Height of the tree

= AC = AB + BC = A’B + BC

= 16/√3 + 8/√3 = 24/√3 = 24√3/3 = 8√3

Hence, the height of the tree 8/√3m.
