Need to know how tall a tree would have to be for the top to land on a road 200 feet above the base of it fell on a 35% slope?
How do you factor in, the wind velocity and age of the tree?

The wording of the question implies the road is above the tree.
The tree will fall on a slope angle whose tan=0.35, i.e. 19.29 deg.
Assuming the tree falls maximally up the slope, it will be the hypotenuse of a triangle whose opposite side is 200 ft.
Height=605.42 ft.... That's unlikely ! ...Check your wording.
