Any idea what would do this to our tree?

Davidson County Tennessee sapsucker damage trees

This looks like sapsucker/woodpecker damage. The damage will not immediately weaken the tree but monitor the health of the tree throughout the growing season. See our website for photos and more information http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/woodpeckers-and-sapsuckers-0
