Just prior to lift-off from the private airstrip the pilot stated that the engine misfired. He elected to abandon the take-off and veered the aircraft to the left to avoid a stand of trees just beyond the upwind end of the strip. The aircraft could not be stopped before colliding with the side boundary fence. Investigation revealed that the probable cause of the engine misfiring was lead fouling of one or more of the spark plugs.
