Bombardier Dash 8-100 Flight Control Difficulties

During the initial climb following take-off, the FO noted that abnormal forward pressure on the control column was required to keep the aircraft from pitching nose up. To counter the pitch-up, he trimmed the aircraft nose down. Thirty seconds after becoming airborne, the aircraft was 350 feet above ground level and the FO had applied full nose-down trim. The amount of forward pressure on the control column continued to increase as the aircraft accelerated, and the FO notified the captain of the control difficulties and requested his assistance in holding the control column forward.
