Location:Sheets Airport - FA42, Groveland, FL -   United States of America

The pilot stated that a gusting, quartering tailwind was creating turbulence along the landing runway. During the landing, the airplane bounced three times. After the third bounce, the pilot added power to perform a go-around. During the go-around, the wind blew the airplane to the left of the runway, where it struck a tree, then pivoted 180 degrees and struck another tree, damaging the wings and horizontal stabilizer. Postaccident examination revealed no evidence of preimpact mechanical malfunction or failure that would have precluded normal operation.
Probable Cause: The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during a go-around maneuver in gusty crosswind conditions.
