Chainsaw Gang is a reality TV show that features Stacy Poitras – one of the country's top chainsaw carving artists – and his crew as they create works of art from logs and other large blocks of wood. The trials and tribulations of the crew portrays everyday dangers and irritations of the trade, including blades breaking and chainsaws bursting into flame, near-finished sculptures splitting open from an unseen issue in the wood, and customers who change their mind about what they want after the work is done.

Chainsaw Gang debuted on November 10, 2012 as part of an initial 10 show series[1]

The series is principally filmed at Poitras' business, Deadwood Tree Sculptures in Malibu, California and other locations where the crew may be carving as demonstrations.
