The pilot reported that prior to takeoff he dipped the fuel tanks and determined that there was sufficient fuel for the flight over his property. During the flight the engine lost all power and the pilot was committed to a landing in a treed area. After touchdown the left wing struck a tree and the aircraft swung to the left causing the right wingtip to contact the ground. The pilot subsequently dipped the fuel tanks and found they contained only a small quantity of unuseable fuel. This accident was not the subject of an on-site investigation.
