Your drive missed the fairway, but you're a mid-iron from the green. Your lie is good the only trouble is a sizable tree standing between you and the pin.
You could make the safe play and hit a half-wedge back to the fairway, but in this situation you need to make something happen in your round. With a few minor adjustments to your setup and swing you should be able to loft the ball high enough to clear the tree and land on the green.
