Answer:55.6 inch

Step-by-step explanation:the cardboard tree, the horizontal base and the diagonal would form a right angled triangle.

the carboard tree would be the height

the horizontal base would be the base

the diagonal would be the hypotenuse

the length of the diagonal base can be determined using the Pythagoras theorem

the Pythagoras theorem : a² + b² = c²

a = base

b = height

c = hypotenuse

48² + 28² = 3088

c = √3088 = 55.6 inch
