The pilot reported that he touched down at about 60 knots with full flaps and the aircraft bounced a couple of times before he attempted a go-around. During the attempted go-around, the pilot selected flaps fully up and full power but almost ran out of strip before becoming airborne. While attempting to avoid a tree near the end of the strip, he stalled the aircraft, which then settled onto a fence.
