NTSB Factual Report

The pilot reported conducting a normal landing on the turf runway. However, immediately after landing, the airplane veered to the right and impacted a tree, damaging the right wing and fuselage. He further stated that it was "unlikely a mechanical problem" and that recent rains had made the turf runway soft. He also stated that the brake was not left on. An inspector with the Federal Aviation Administration examined the airplane and no preimpact mechanical anomalies were found.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's loss of directional control during landing on a soft, turf runway.
