The pilot reported that during a landing on a road, and an attempted go-around, he was unable to prevent the aircraft veering to the left and colliding with a tree and a fence. The flare for landing had been commenced early resulting in a low forward speed and high nose attitude on touchdown. The pilot was only able to see the road through his side window and it is believed that the slope of the road was a major factor in the loss of directional control.
