NTSB Factual Report

The pilot stated that he was taking off in a southerly direction from a narrow, tree lined airstrip. During the takeoff roll, sunlight restricted his visibility. The airplane drifted left and subsequently came into contact with numerous juvenile fir trees along the side of the runway. The contact with the trees resulted in substantial leading edge damage to both wings, and the fuselage. The pilot reported no preaccident mechanical malfunctions or failures that would have precluded normal operation of the airplane or engine.

NTSB Probable Cause

The pilot's failure to maintain directional control during the takeoff roll into sunlight, which restricted his visibility.
