Apple tree trunk and branches problem

I noticed my apple tree has many perfectly shaped round holes all over the trunk and up about 7 or 8 feet. I never saw this before. Do you know the cause and the treatment of the problem?

Part of my lawn gives up early

Each summer, and early this summer due to the warm weather, part of my lawn that gets a lot of sun each day just seems to go dormant. It isn't all the lawn that is in all-day sun. Could this be part of older Northwest Blend grass seed? I have no idea when this lawn was originally planted. I fertilize and water regularly. I'm thinking of replacing the parts that are unsightly, if the problem is the type of grass. If the problem is the underlying soil, that's a whole other issue. Thanks.

Leaf curling insects on ash tree

I have aphids, I think, curled up in leaves in my ash tree. Tree is less than 2 years old, and, my opinion, is a substandard quality. I see new black ants all over now, seemingly to eat ants...I don't know for sure. What kind of product to rid leaf curls/insects inside them? Thank you.

red currant fruit fly

For the first time, my red currants have maggots. I believe it is the Red currant fruit fly but also know the spotted wing drosophila is spreading in Oregon. I do not know if it attacks currants. I would like to know what maggot this is, and how to get rid of it.

Trying to kill a vine

Just purchased a new house and there is a vine that is healthy, spreading everywhere, and I can't seem to kill it. I THINK it is coming from a mama plant that was cut down - there are shoots coming off of the stump. Under every leaf that sprouts there are roots. I have sprayed it with vine killer and those leaves die off but there seem to be more and more every day. It grows up and through other bushes and trees. The vine itself seems to be "woody." Can you help? P.S. I was at my vet's office today and noticed the exact same vine and took more pictures which I have attached. Hopefully this will help identify.
