The aircraft was returning following a short local flight. The pilot noted that the wind conditions were such that the normal landing direction would incur a small tailwind component but he believed that this was preferable to an approach over trees at the other end of the runway. He stated that just before touchdown, the tailwind increased and he decided to go around. During the go-around, the aircraft struck the trees and crashed just beyond them.
