Artist's Description

Save Sheffield Trees with this Sheffield Chainsaw Massacre artwork, based on the famous release poster for Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

5,500 of Sheffield’s street trees have been chopped down in the last five years – another 12,000 are scheduled to go over the next 20 years.

Healthy trees are being ‘replaced’ as part of the ‘Streets Ahead’ highways PFI contract, run by Amey Plc on behalf of Sheffield City Council.

Forced publication of the contract has revealed a target to replace 17,500 (or half) of Sheffield’s street trees. Although renewing street trees is vital work, to cut down so many in such a short space of time is ecological vandalism.
Protesters were calling for an expert-led approach to the management of the city’s street trees, for the long-term benefit of Sheffield’s people and our natural environment.

Trees with many decades to live are being destroyed, ignoring the advice of the Council’s own Independent Tree-Panel and maximising Amey’s profits. The value of trees already lost is approximately £60 million – unless we can stop the Sheffield Chainsaw Massacre the final figure will be many times higher.

Read about the campaign and its history at www.savesheffieldtrees.org. A portion of profits from each sale of a Sheffield Chainsaw Massacre item will go towards funds to help the campaign. #SAVESHEFFTREES
