The particular spraying run crossed a group of trees at the top of a rise. As the pilot pulled up to overfly the trees the right wing of the aircraft struck some branches. The pilot noticed fluid escaping from the tears in the wing and elected to carry out an immediate landing on the downslope beyond the trees. Shortly after touchdown the aircraft yawed, the left wheel dug in and the aircraft rolled over twice before coming to rest inverted.
