THE PILOT WAS PARTICIPATING IN A SPOT LANDING ACTIVITY AT A FLY-IN. HE STATED THAT HE MADE A POOR LANDING AND ALLOWED THE AIRCRAFT TO DRIFT LEFT AND OFF OF THE RUNWAY. IN ORDER TO MISS THE RUNWAY LIGHTS, HE ADDED POWER AND INITIATED A GO-AROUND. AFTER LIFT-OFF, HE LOWERED THE NOSE TO GAIN AIRSPEED, BUT THEN HAD TO PULL UP TO CLEAR TREES. AFTER CLEARING THE TREES, HE THOUGHT HE HAD SUFFICIENT AIRSPEED TO TURN AND RE-ENTER THE TRAFFIC PATTERN. SHORTLY THEREAFTER, THE AIRSPEED AND ALTITUDE BEGAN TO DETERIORATE. THE PILOT TRIED TO GO THROUGH A CLEARING WITH TREES ON EITHER SIDE. HOWEVER, THE PLANE STRUCK A TREETOP AND CRASHED.
