The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has postponed a controversial plan to begin clearcutting timber on the Bridgestone Firestone Centennial Wilderness Area in White County. The plan to clearcut timber for wildlife habitat improvement on the public management area has been under fire since it was announced last summer.

TWRA previously announced it intended to begin clearing the land in April. However, TWRA Executive Director Bobby Wilson said Wednesday morning the Agency “will be suspending any plans to do any cutting until this situation is resolved.”
