The pilot stated that during approach to the 50-foot-wide runway, in his airplane which had a 54.5-foot wingspan, he maintained a left wing low attitude to account for a crosswind from the left and touched down 1 to 2 feet right of the runway centerline. While correcting towards the runway centerline, the right wing collided with a bush located off the right side of the runway resulting in substantial damage to the right aileron. He indicated there was nothing mechanically wrong with the airplane that caused the collision, and that he had flown into the same airstrip between 30 and 50 times. Following the accident, the bush was removed.
