A 1 foot shadow I think.

To cast a 19 foot shadow the building would have to be 26.91 feet tall. Each foot of building/tree casts 8.47 inches of shadow.

It works out as 12 feet and 4 inches in height

A stick is 6/4.5 = 4/3 times its shadow. So the tree is 4/3*25 = 33.3... feet or 33 ft 4 inches tall.

The man is twice as high as his shadow. Therefore, the tree must also be twice as high as its shadow, which would make the tree 40 feet tall.
