Sometimes you want a specific tree removed, and sometimes you want the dead and damaged trees removed from your property. Nothing But Chips is a land clearing company run by me, Mike Williams, longtime resident of Nashville. I do all of the jobs myself, so you won’t be relying on land clearing contractors. My reputation relies on every job I do, and I take every job seriously!

I specialize in removing the specific trees you want with my selective tree removal and selective land clearing services. I have specialized equipment you won’t find at every land clearing company in Nashville that can weave around the trees you want to keep and chop down the trees you don’t. I have been doing tree clearing in Nashville for decades, so you can trust me for your selective land clearing jobs! Give me a call today at (615) 838-4543.




“We hired Mike @Nothing But Chips to clear an overgrown property of 20+ years. Mike was honest, fair, and diligent. He listened to our concerns, and offered suggestions about what, how much to remove, and what would look most visually appealing. In addition, Mike was able to calm a nosy neighbor by referring to the property line stakes and we appreciated his professionalism in that situation.”

I use specialized skidsteers that are built to do work in the close confines of the forest. Featuring specialized attachments, they remove trees in pieces. My skidsteers were built for this kind of selective tree removal, and I ame proud to use them to make sure I am able to do the job for you effectively and quickly. Once I remove the tree, you have a couple of options for what to do with it. I can just chip the tree, or you could use it for firewood or timber. It is up to you, but I am more than happy to help you with whatever you want done.


If you’re looking for a more thorough land clearing service or need forestry mulching done, I can help with that, too!


My selective land clearing services will keep the forests on your land healthy, and they are also the best way to cut down the exact tree you want removed for firewood or timber. No matter what you want out of my selective cutting, I are happy to work with you to make sure that you are satisfied.
