He stated the local winds were gusty and alternating between east and southeast, and he used runway 17 for takeoff. He stated engine power was normal, but he was unable to maintain a climb when he reached the south end of the runway which was bordered by trees. The airplane began a descent near the end of the runway. The lower right wing contacted a tree just south of a highway which bordered the south end of the airport. The pilot stated that after the accident he noted the winds at the south side of the airport were out of the south and the wind sock at the north end of the airport was indicating winds from the northeast.

Probable Cause: the pilot's inability to maintain a climb after takeoff as a result of wind shear. Factors associated with the accident were the variable, gusty wind conditions, and the tree which was contacted.
