Nature:Private
Departure airport:NC81

Investigating agency: NTSB
Narrative:
The pilot had taxied the airplane to runway 09, and planned a short field takeoff. He ran the engine to full power, released the foot brakes, applied full right rudder, in anticipation of the airplane yawing to the left, and applied back pressure on the yoke. As the nose rotated, the stall warning horn sounded and the airplane drifted to the right. The pilot applied left aileron, but never released the right rudder pedal. The airplane continued to drift right until it struck a tree, turning the airplane hard to the right, and striking the next tree with the spinner of the propeller. The airplane came to rest opposite the direction of takeoff, against a clutter of trees, supported by the left wing
Probable Cause: the pilot's failure to maintain control of the airplane resulting in the airplane drifting, and subsequently impacting with trees.
