How tall is a tree?

Weve all seen trees so I wanna know how tall are they?

Like a tree you'd see in a forest or a park.

You can estimate the height of a tree using its shadow and the angle at which the sun is in the sky.

You can get the angle of the sun by measuring your height and the lenght of your shadow.

How high does a tree grow?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know.

H = (L*h)/l
Where :
H is the height of the tree
L is the lenght of the shadow of the tree
h is your height
l is the lenght of your shadow

You don't even need trigonometry because H/L = h/l

And with trigonometry, you get H=Ltan(arctan(h/l))=(L*h)/l

Because H/L=h/l is really complicated.

You can find it using trigonometry.
