NTSB Factual Report

The pilot initiated a takeoff on a 1,500-foot-long, 50-foot-wide, turf runway. During the takeoff roll, as the tailwheel started to liftoff, the left main landing gear traveled over a soft spot on the runway. The airplane then ground looped to the left, struck trees, and came to rest.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain control during the takeoff roll, which resulted in a ground loop and subsequent impact with trees. A factor was the soft runway as reported by the pilot.
