1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A tree is leaning 14 degrees from the vertical. The tree casts a 40 foot shadow on the flat ground. The line from the trees shadow to the top of tree creates a 60 degree angle above the horizontal. I need to find the lenght of the tree.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried everything, i know of but im stuck. I tried using trig but that only gave the lenghts for the outside of the right triangle the tree divides. I need help desperately!!
