The pilot said when he was on a 1/2-mile final approach to runway 22 (3,200 ft. x 50 ft), he realized he was too high and too fast and he deployed full flaps. He flared and the airplane touched down, bounced, and touched down again. He elected to abort the landing. After lift off, the stall warning horn sounded and he realized he would be unable to clear the trees ahead. He landed in a field, applied maximum braking, and collided with trees approximately 1,000 feet beyond the departure end of the runway.
PROBABLE CAUSE:the pilot's failure to initiate a timely go-around. A factor was the pilot's misjudgment of distance and speed during the approach.
