The instructor pilot reported that the takeoff roll and climb were normal until the left crosswind turn at about 600 ft when the engine lost power and RPM decreased to between 1600 and 1900 RPM. Trouble checks were carried out and a turn towards the airfield as commenced. However, due to the distance from the airfield and bordering powerlines a glide approach was not possible. A 300 m long clearing was selected for a landing and the aircraft impacted with some small saplings. The aircraft was vacated once stationary and no injuries were sustained by the crew.
