Bids came in too low at an auction held Thursday in Chattanooga of a large wooded tract in Grundy County.
The bids halted after the high bid was $250 per acre.
Officials of J.P. King Auctions said some private neogitations would take part with some interested buyers to see if a deal could be worked out.
The 3,282 acres near Tracy City were offered in two tracts.
The site is near the Grundy Forest State Natural Area and Foster Falls Wildlife Area.
