Just prior to touchdown, the aircraft was witnessed commencing a roll and yaw to the left of the runway centreline. In what appeared to be an attempted correction by the pilot, the aircraft was observed to roll and yaw to the right. At a height of approximately 15 feet, it was observed to turn back to the left and track, in a nose high attitude and with decreasing airspeed, towards trees to the north of the runway. The aircraft collided with the trees and came to a stop in a nose-down position.
