The Bob Brown Foundation and pro-forestry campaigners continue to clash - this time over comments on social media.
This follows a series of protests in the Tarkine, at Ta Ann's timber mill in Smithton, in Hobart and in Launceston against logging by BBF supporters.
Pro-forestry campaigner Kelly Wilton, who runs the Support Tassie's Timber People Facebook page, said comments on the BBF's Facebook posts had left her with genuine fear recent protest activity by the foundation would endanger the safety of workers in the timber industry.
"I was shocked to see comments suggesting activists should engage in the practice of tree-spiking had been left unmoderated," Ms Wilton said.
In other news:
"There were also comments directed at Shawn Britton, managing director of Britton Timbers, that he should be 'knee-capped' and that he needs 'a silver pill' - a colloquial term used for a bullet."
The comments in question have now been removed by the BBF.
Tarkine campaigner Scott Jordan said the BBF always practiced non-violence and has never nor would never condone tree-spiking or violence.
"The BBF has 110,000 Facebook followers, and over the past week we have had over 1000 comments on posts relating to the BBF's activities. With such a large volume this week, we were not able to respond to every comment as quickly as we would like to," Mr Jordan said.
"We always endeavour to remove comments on our social media platforms that are not consistent with our values.
"The comments made by the private individuals referred to by Ms Wilton do not reflect the BBF's values, or reflect our practices, and these posts were removed from our Facebook page as soon as they came to our attention."
But comments on Ms Wilton's own Facebook page about violence towards protesters remain.
Most recently, a video posted by the BFF of a tree-sitter protesting in the Tarkine shared on her page on February 9 has comments including "hope the ropes break" and "hope a tree falls on you you moron".
Tasmania Police confirmed it received a report about an earlier comment on the page which encouraged violence toward a specific BBF member.
"Police have determined that the comment did not constitute an offence, however attended the residence of the person who posted the comment and advice was provided," a police spokesperson said.
