Narrative:Collided with a stand of trees during an attempted go-around while landing at a private airstrip. A witness said that just before the airplane touched down, the engine power increased significantly, the nose pitched up, and it began a steep climb. The witness said that the airplane's right wing struck a 75-foot tall tree, which pivoted the airplane to the right, and it descended nose first into dense woods.
