Forestry Tasmania says a letter alleging a coupe at St Marys on the east coast has been sabotaged will not stop logging.

The letter, signed by an unknown group 'Friends of the Forests', said several trees have been filled with nails and plastic in an attempt to halt woodchipping.

Kim Creak, Forestry Tasmania general manager, says police will investigate.

"There's no plans at all at this stage to change the activities in the area but we will have to be careful when people make threats like this," he said.

"It puts in direct danger a number of people's livelihoods, as well as themselves, going into that area and operating in that area."
