Repairing a Tree With Old Woodpecker Holes

tconroy added on June 30, 2016 | Answered

I bought a house with a 100 foot tall maple - a beautiful tree with a lovely 'rough' bark. But there is a patch of trunk with wood pecker holes and a smaller area with ant holes which has no bark. I want to make sure no further damage results. I have sprayed for ants and they seem to be gone. Is there a reasonable way to add fungicide to kill any fungus, and then fill the holes and cover the exposed bark that will help ensure the tree stays strong? Thanks Tim
