Following a longer than expected take-off run over wet/soft grassland, the aircraft became airborne and had insufficient height to clear a line of trees at the airfield boundary hedgerow.  The right-hand wing-tip struck a holly tree and the aircraft subsequently impacted heavily into the adjacent field. Both occupants escaped without injury, but the aircraft was substantially damaged. There was no fire.
